Abdominal pain and diarrhea. Noticed pink discharge while wiping. HPT negative. What is going on?

This past week i ve had bad diarrhea and went to the hospital saturday and got tests done and an xray because of bad stomach pains but they said it was just a virus but tonight when i went to the bathroom i had a pinkish color on the toilet paper when i wiped. So i took a pregnancy test but it came out negative, should i have waited to take it or is it right? i m just so confused because when i looked it all up it says pregnancy but the test came out negative.

Thank you for the query.

Pinkish color on the toilet paper can be caused by intestine invagination (intussusception). It causes strong abdominal which can suddenly disappear if the intestine comes back to regular state. Sometimes it is very hard to diagnose it. Abdominal ultrasound during the pain should visualize it.
Viral intestinal infection is also possible especially if your pain wont happen again.
However if your symptoms will come back again, diagnostics should be done including abdominal ultrasound, colonoscopy, full blood work.

Hope this will help.
