I am sorry to hear about this concern for Daisy. Absolutely, this is well worth a vet visit. She is exhibitng symptoms of prominent stomach and intestinal distress.
Possible causes are really numerous including having ingested something you don't know about, eating something she doesn't typically eat, foreign body ingestion, intestinal parasites or organ disease.
To help settle the stomach, you can give some Pepcid A.C. antacid, but need to know how much she weighs. Definitely, I would not suggest a wait and see approach. Well worth the vet visit. Basic testing, especially if it hasn't been done in the past year, probably should include a blood profile, and maybe some abdominal x-rays.
A vet can also give her some really good medication to help the colitis (inflammation in the colon), which is evident by the blood and mucous in the stool.
