Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
Food color is a common cause for color of stool.
It can be the factor.
As you do not feel any pain or any other symptom, you can wait & watch.

If you develop pain, nausea, fever or if the color continues, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

A stool test can be taken.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
