Ok then .
by the symptoms that you are describing Be is most possibly suffering from an open pyometra.
This means that she has puss build up in her uterus and since her cervix is open - it is poring out and that is what you see coming from her backside.
Pyometra is a disease of middle aged bitches most commonly and a number of a weeks after they had a season .
it can be caused by bacterial infection or idiopathicly (meaning - without knowing how.
This is a serious condition that if not treated will get worse .

So what to do :
1. You need to pay a visit to your vet (today) for Be to be examined and if found to have a pyometra as suspected would need to start a course of antibiotics and fluid therapy for at least 24h.
After that there are two options , the first which is recommended by me is to have a surgery done to remove her uterus , take out the infected organ which gives best chances of recovery , or prolong the course of antibiotics in hopes (in case of an open pyometra)that the uterus will heal by itself.

But what is sure is you must seek veterinary attention now and not wait till Monday.

I wish you both all the best.
