Will eating beet root cause change in color of stools?

I m an 18 year old female. I had beets for dinner and two days after that I noticed that the toliet water turned red. Today I went to the bathroom and when I wiped myself, I noticed a clear muscus like substance.. I have bad breath and no stomach pain....does it sound like something serious? Parasites maybe? Eating habits?

likely that the color is because of beet. stop and observe for 3 days.
mucus can be normal some times.
if symptoms persist then worth while getting stool examination done.
bad breath is likely due to poor oral hygeine unrelated to stool problem.
hope this answers your query wish u a speedy recovery
