If you can smell urine strong in the barn that can cause this.

If it is dusty can cause this.

Having a cold in the eyes, can also be an issue, you can put penG in the eye with a syringe, no needle, drip a few drops in there, 2 x a day for 4-5 days will help.

Get a rectal temperature on both to see if they are running a fever. Normal temp is 101.5 - 103.5 *F

How old are they? How much do they weigh? Are they on whole cows milk bottles?
They are 2 weeks old and I don't know how much they weigh I got them last night and no they are on Kids milk replacer that's what my dad bought for them

You need to be able to weigh them so that you know how much to feed them in the bottles. Which breed are they? Check them carefully for lice. Are you able to post photos?

Which brand is the replacer?

Get temperatures ASAP.

Did the breeder say if the kids had gotten any medications at all?

Mucous in the poop can be a sign of ecoli infection but let's see if they have normal milk poops and normal temperatures first.

Offer hay, a bucket of water, and a pan of grower pellet grain for them 24/7 in addition to bottles.
