Blood and mucus in the stool is indicative of gastrointestinal issues as infection in the GI tract, any ulcer or swelling, hemmarhoids enlargement, Inflammatory bowel disease etc. Along with that frequency of passing stool is also very high.
You require a clinical examination along with investigations as Stool test, USG scan, Blood test so that the exact cause can be ruled out and treatment started accordingly.

Please do not ignore this.Consider visiting a Physician for evaluation.In mean time:
Take regular healthy diet.

Avoid tobacco in any form.

Try to avoid constipation, have more of salads and fibre in your diet.

Take care!
