Newborn in the initial days for 3 to 5 days passes meconium and it will be black in color and it gradually changes to green and then yellow in color and nothing to worry. The meconium is formed by the sloughed debris that present in newborn intestine and as the gut activity increases the color will change to green to yellow with the passage of bile in stool. The blood in vomitus may be swallowed mother blood during delivery or newborn blood because of bleeding due to early hemorrhagic disease of newborn and happy thing is the bleeding stopped and baby is ok now as you told.
