Thanks for usingHCM
There are many causes for passing mucus in stool, may not be serious though, you need to evaluated for it. Consult a gastroenterologist for further management.
It could be due to rectal ulcer, IBS, colon diseases or some infections too etc
You may need to get complete examination of abdomen, stool test, few others depending on cause.

Have a good health, take care
