Thanks for posting your query.
The loose stools in a 7 month old with mild blood and mucus is suggestive of an intestinal infection. Most of the times it is a viral diarrhea which is self limiting in nature and can be treated with dietary modifications and prebiotics, adequate fluid replacement , avoiding milk and giving more of yogurt, etc.
Just wait and watch for the stool color for few days to come back to normal on its own.
If it is associated with loose stools and fever with poor feeding of the baby then you must consult your pediatrician for further examination and treatment. Systemic antibiotics are needed in such cases after proper examination and stool test.

I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
