Noticed a chunk in stool. Brown. Can that be blood?

I noticed a kind jagged edged light pink (veal looking) area attached to a little lighter than cardboard brown chunk of stool in the toilet, along with some other chunks of lighter brown stool that had apparently not flushed down the toilet. Not sure who it belongs to yet. Is that blood in the stool? Or some kind of undigested food? Things kids ate that is about that color is salmon.

If it is a single episode then undigested food is one of the possibility.
Dark brown or black stool indicates presence of blood in the stool.
