I have that a lot but I think it's mostly mucous, which is usually a sign of inflammation/a flare.

It does sound like mucus caused by the start of a flare and you should try to meet with your GI soon rather than hang in and see because your intestinal walls could become more damaged the longer you wait, trust me, I've been there.
