Brief Answer:
No, but further tests are required

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

If there is no blood in stool and pain in abdomen or weight loss, then you should not be concerned. However this should be evaluated since it may not be just IBS, but also some other inflammatory bowel diseases, food allergy, or parasitic infections. You should get done stool analysis and colonoscopy if symptoms persist. Try to eat more fruit and vegetables and fluids, eat boiled food and high fiber foods.

Let me know if there's any further queries.

Wish you good health.
