Thank you for the query.

White stool is most likely caused by lack of bile in the stool. Usually it happens when the bile ducts get obstructed by gallstones. Such obstruction can cause also vomiting, lack of appetite and other gastrointestinal symptoms.
You definitely should visit your doctor and have blood work, liver tests (AST,ALT,GGTP,AP), bilirubin, amylase, urine amylase, urine analysis and abdominal ultrasound performed. If the bile ducts are obstructed, you should have ERCP procedure which should cure this condition.
Vaginal bleeding should be verified by gyneacologist, but after ruling out bile ducts obstruction.

Hope this will help.
