Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
The fresh blood with yellowish mucus may be due to any disease in lower part of large intestine as in rectum or anal canal .
However it may be due to hemorrhoids or fistula in anus.
Physical examination by a surgeon will find out the exact disease.
If not than get in colonoscopy and treatment according to disease.
Good luck.
