Hello. Welcome to hcm.
Passing of mucus stools is a part of irritable bowel syndrome. Common pathology for ibs is stress. So it is better to decrease stress by meditation.
I advice you to undergo stool examination to confirm it is normal stool variant. Only if any pathology is found,you can visit surgeon who can give treatment accordingly. Dont start antibiotics unless infection is proved. Dring lots of water and eat diet with lot of fibre.
All the best
