Brief Answer:
Colonoscopy should be done.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Such symptons at your age (over 50) should be checked with possible large intestine tumor. You do have symptoms of partial bowels obstruction. It may appear from time to time. But after a while you may notice increased frequency of such episodes.
I suggest you to have colonoscopy done.

Hope this helps.
