Thanks for writing in

The information though inadequate points to urgency

There are n number of reasons for the same, yet the commonest is GI infection and/or collitis

In any case take lot of fluids orally and if possible add a probiotic twice a day

If this does not work, go for a stool examination and an antibiotic according to the report

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of doubts
Wishing you a healthy life ahead
