Ok so today when I went to the bathroom I felt like I had to have a bowel movement and when I went there was small amount of stool and yellowish mucus. I have had diareah off and on for two weeks doctor said it was just a bug. Is the mucus normal after being sick or during being sick? Should I be concerned? Also haven't been able to eat much could that cause this?
A small amount of mucous in the stool following diarrhea is common and not necessarily of any concern.

I suspect that this will resolve over the next several days.
