Default New Owner! Very worried! Poop/mucus

Well, I have had my hedgie for almost 3 weeks now. Her poop was fine but sometimes it is green and not the usual size. I am getting worried though because her poop has a slimy look and some clearness. Also, I had found some slime in her cage and I am not sure what it is. This is really worrying me and I am not sure what to do. Please help, thanks!
** I am adding a couple of pictures just in case.

Since it sounds like it's happening regularly, it's possibly a bacterial infection. I'd suggest a trip to the vet - take a fresh (same day) fecal sample with you. If that's what it is, a round of antibiotics should clear it up.
