3.5 child having orange stains in underwear. On meds for constipation. Should i be worried?

My son is 3 and a half and today has had orange stains in his underwear where his anal area is. It has a bad odor. He is on meds for constipation but I ve never seen anything like this and am scared to death!! He says nothing hurts. It s literally the color of orange Gatorade. He is on Kristalose and mineral oil for constipation. Is he ok or should I be worried?? Please help
