Yikes, so sorry I missed this.

Yes, at that age mucousy poops can be serious.

Are there solid ones as well?

Do you have her mother? If not, how old was she when she came to you?

Is she drinking? Eating? What is she eating?

There's actually a questionairre at the top of this forum to collect this info.

If she is 6-7 weeks old and not still with the doe she has a very fragile GI tract.

This is a very dangerous time for a young rabbit as they are born with sterileGI tracts and obtain normal GI flora from nursing on the doe ( from the milk) ; I would feed a lot of hay and also give a dose of benebac which is a probiotic.
