Well, I would clear that, the Dark stool is common with the use of Prunes.

Eating food, high in iron could change the color of your bowel movements. Prunes are high in Iron and it changes stool color to dark.

Such, Changes in the color of stool is due to Excess consumption of Prunes. It is not related to any other issue. No need to get panic.

Regarding, stomach discomfort, this can be due to the side effect of Victoza.

Having -upset stomach, loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue are the common side effect of Victoza.

Usually, such side effects would disappear by its own with time. No need to get panic.

Hope this helped
