Constipated Goldfish

I think we're going to need a whole section on goldfish poop soon. :D ;;

When goldfish are constipated you'll see abnormal poop. What usually happens is that the fish is only able to excrete the mucus layer of the poop, causing it to appear as a long white strand coming from the anus. The goldfish will also be irritated by its blocked digestion and may even glup air and show several air bubbles attached to the strand.

Behavior may be normal, but don't be surprised if you run into swim bladder problems.

There are many symptoms that can mean alot of different things, this is one of them.

Bloating can be a sign

Not defecating, another.

Bottom sitting, or floating. As well as what Nenn said.
