It could be discharge or blood from a baby. There really isn't any way to know for sure. You need to leave mom and babies completely alone for two weeks. Only go near the cage to give her clean food and water daily. Don't make any changes in the cage, don't add anything else new or take anything out unless she has a wheel. If there is a wheel you need to take it out. You can't clean the cage until the babies are weaned.
