Could yellow orange capsule with Mylan 4010 imprinted on it be antibiotic Cepahlexin 500mg?

I have an old yellow orange capsule in an Rx bottle written to me that states that it is Cephalexin 500MG, which I know to be an antibiotic. However, I m not sure if that capsule really is Cephalexin. I need to know what the capsule I have really is. Description: yellow-orange with Mylan 4010 imprinted on it. I ve attempted looking it up in my Nursing Handbook, but am unable to find it. I know the colors in the book are not true, but I can t find anything with those markings on it. Can you help, or do I need to simply ask my pharmacist?

Found out it was an infection. I was given cephalexin Monohydrate. 10 days, four days pills a day. Sympton cleared up in a few days. I took all the meds and now a week later when I use the bathroom there is a gooey discharge with blood in it. Not a lot of blood but there is some.
