The past two times I have gone to the bathroom to do number 2 it has just been a lot of bloody mucas coming out. I m very worried because I ate some hamburger meat earlier today and I dont think it was any good. Can that be what is causing this if not what are some other things it can be? I also have had an upset stomachs and sharp pains right underneath my right rib cage.

Thank you for the query.

Blood and mucus in the stool is usually caused by large intestine disease including inflammatory bowel disease, large intestine polyps or even colon cancer. This conditions should be ruled out at first.
Food poisoning would give rather nausea and diarrhea than only mucus and blood.
Right upper abdominal pain especially when radiates to the back, is caused by gallstones or sometimes by pancreas disease.
It is advisable for you to have some diagnostics. Abdominal ultrasound, full blood work, liver tests, amylase, bilirubin and urine analysis should be performed as well as colonoscopy.

Hope this will help.
