Question red stains/gooey paws

Our 55 lb mixed breed active male... has some sticky feet. He also has a vet appointment Tuesday....

Here is what I found. When looking at his paws his white hair in between his toes is stained kind of a darkish red color, I would call it dried blood color. I have not found any dried blood. His paws also have a gooey-mucusy- substance. To best describe it, I would call it clear snot.

The "goo" is what caught my attention. I thought he stepped on a worm or something. Then I found I was cleaning it off and it just kept coming! As I rinse his feet the water runs completely clear. No limping or anything.

I scheduled a vet appointment right away. Does anyone think this sounds like a real emergency? He's fine otherwise... well for him.. He is a picky eater and hasn't developed an appetite, which would worry me.
