What causes mucus in faeces?

Hi, I have had problems with orange mucus on my faeces for a while now but it is getting more and more. I can also feel like I need to go to the loo but more of this will just come away. Do you have any ideas what i could be? I am 39, 5ft 1" and weigh 8st 12lb. I have no other medical problems. Thanks.
