Welcome to the diarrhoea you have could be due to infectious causes such as amoebiasis or could mean some infection/inflammation in the lower digestive tract.Please get a stool routine test to see if infection is there .Also please see a doctor as it is not normal to pass mucus.

Due to excessive loose motion mucosal membrane of your intestine might have got damaged and it might be passing in stool.You need not worry regarding that ,it is normal process and within short period it will vanish,but if you want to get rid off it early then you can take merc sol 30 4 tabs 3 times in day for 2-3 days and report back.
