I have a new puppy, that I got 2 weeks ago. Today she woke up, ate this morning and has had diarrhea today along with continual mucus coming out of her rear end. She has not drank any water or eaten a thing since this morning. And she has slept all day. Her stomach is continuing to gurgle and she has gone from 4.2 pounds to 3.4 pounds in a day. What could this be and should I be worried??

If the puppy has lost almost 1lb in a day yes you should be worried and get your puppy to a vet asap!

You need to get her to an emergency vet. It could be Parvo, which can kill puppies if not caught and treated early. Even if it is something else, puppies can dehydrate and get hypoglycemic quickly and it can be life threatening.
