Hi it's common for young dogs to eat to fast and to get a stomach ache afterwards. We commonly call this "food bloat" where there stomach seems painful and even hard and distended. If she is dry-heaving or unable to keep any food or water down, that is a bad sign. Otherwise, typically the food will slowly move out of the stomach and digest over the next 8 hours or so.

After the first time of throwing up she was doing fine and she has been able to keep water down

That's great! If the vomiting starts up again, let me know but it sounds like this was just temporary. Mucous stools just means that the bowels were upset for some reason. It is typically not anything to worry about. I hope this helps.
