black bowel movements are called melena and is a sign of bleeding from your stomach, possibly from a stomach ulcer.

this is a serious condition and you should got to the ER for urgent evaluation by a GI doctor to look down into your stomach to stop the bleeding.

do you have a hospital close to you.
