Thanks for your query.

Kindly get your stool checked for Stool Routine & Microscopy. Ultrasonography of Abdomen would also be helpful.Last option may be a CT scan. If everything is normal, then we may need to consider colonoscopy

It could be due an infection or an inflammatory bowel disease

The medicines you are taking Tab. Metformin 750 mg BD and Tab. Ramipril may not cause such white discharge from stool.
Till that time you may go for Deworming with a broad spectrum deworming tablet one table every 15 days to prevent recurrence.

Cut down of Oil / Spicy food.Include lots of XXXXXXX vegetables and fruits in your diet.Drink lot of water daily.

Hope this answers your query.I am available for follow ups as well.
