Brief Answer:
Seems like Viral only.

Detailed Answer:
HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Yes it looks like a viral infection of gut , but a possibility of food poisoning is also there. But since it is mild diarrhoea , the possibility of viral is high.

There is no need of any medications for this as of now. Just drink plenty of water, fruit juice, avoid milk , buttermilk , curds, avoid non veg food.

If diarrhoea increase or persists even after 2 days , you have to get a test called stool routine and revert back with report.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.

Regards.
