Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Your symptoms of slight bleeding with mucus suggests show.
You are in your latent phase of labor.
Keep a check on fetal movements.
Once you experience pain in abdomen every 15 minutes, or leaking/ bleeding per vagina, you need to go to hospital immediately.
Hope this helps.
