hi,thanks for query.Please go for stool examination.Normally undigested food in stool is not passed.Light brown color inddicates presence of blood in it.You may some ulcer or infection in the tract.Do not ignore this and visit your doctor.In mean time take light diet,avoid spicy foods and drink plenty of fluids.
wishing you good health.
