Personally I have only experienced clear mucous. But I pretty much ALWAYS have the mucous have a BM. I do not usually experience pain with the mucous. It's just there, if you know what I mean. Sometimes there's more mucous than at other times.
Don't freak out though. I would just discuss it with your doctor just to make sure everythings ok. I know that stress will just increase your symptoms, so try and relax until you can call or get an appt with your doc to discuss your concerns.
Hang in there!
