Horrible cramps, mucus/jelly-like substance came out of anus. Is it dangerous ?

Hi I apologize because this is graphic but I am having horrible cramps/ flatulence buy I ate some fiber one bars so I figured it may be that until I went to the bathroom. There is about 3 or 4 tablespoons worth of mucus/jelly-like substance that came out of my anus (Im assuming during the flatulence? ) is this dangerous?
