My bowel today movement is clear like water
It can be a viral Diarrhea. Are you also having fever or any smell in stool. you should take plenty of ORS.
 
I had a bowel movement earlyer this morning and it wasnt much as if i was constipated. I saw a orange slime around the bowel but it wasnt dyeing thw water.
Hi. Yes this looks to be constipation and the orange slime is due to secretion from the wall of the colon / rectum. Take a laxative in the night , or preferably a redymade enema which you can take at home. This will solve the problem if this for the first time. Id this is a recurrent problem please consult a Gastro Doctor who would advise further .
