Rectal mucous

Hello 😀
New to this community.
I have severe anxiety and other chronic medical conditions including ibs. My question is is it normal to have clear mucous from the rectum with ibs. I’m finding I have urgency to use the bathroom but I’m only wiping clear mucous. It’s quite distressing.
