Thanks for your health query.
Burning while passing urine means that you might be suffering from a urinary tract infection.
Please increase your fluid intake, consuming atleast 4 - 5 litres of liquids per day.
Also, consult a gynecologist, and have a complete check up, as sometimes pelvic infections co exist with urinary tract infections.
Have a complete urine analysis ( urine routine and microscopic examination ) and urine culture done.
Appropriate antibiotics can be prescribed as per the reports.
White stringy material points to excessive mucus in stool.
Stool normally contains a small amount of mucus, but passing stools with visible amounts of mucus could be from one of several different diseases or conditions. Mucus in the stool is a common symptom of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis (a form of inflammatory bowel disease), and is seen to a lesser degree in Crohn's disease. A bacterial infection, anal fissure, or a bowel obstruction may also cause the passage of mucus along with stool.
You should report this to your doctor when you consult, and have a stool examination done too.
Rarely, worm infestation also presents in this way.

Please consult your doctor and have complete laboratory testing of urine and stool.
Meanwhile, as I said, take increased amounts of liquids, avoid dehydration, maintain toilet hygiene, and avoid eating food from outside, as well as raw vegetables, raw meat, uncooked eggs etc.

Take care and feel free to ask for further clarifications.
