Suggest treatment for abdominal pain and black stool

For several days I have experienced some abdominal pain. It was somewhat severe Thursday night, but I felt much better Friday. It is now returning. I just went to the bathroom and my stool was black, which I do not remember happening before. Perhaps this is just a flu or something similar, but am somewhat worried.
