White Stool, Is there a normal, healthy explanation for this ?

I woke up yesterday with white stool and experienced white stool three times, followed by gray and now back to brownish gray. I have taken no antibiotics or other such medications. I had what I believed to be a serious bladder infection approximately one month ago, which lasted just over a week. I had a significant amount of blood in my urine, and I m not sure if any came out of my rectum, as well. I am fatigued and feel a tenderness in my upper right abdominal area, but it s around my ribcage and feels muscular, not like it s coming from the viscera. I am otherwise asymptomatic. Is there a normal, healthy explanation for this ? Thank you!

Thank you for trusting healthcare magic.There can be numerous causes for having a pale stool, for eg.. maldigestion, any gall bladder/ liver or even pancreas associated problem.It can even be a sprue.So if it had settled on its own, nothing to worry, needs evaluation if it continues.

Thank you for your response. I'd like to know, however, that if it is none of those diagnoses, and if it settles on its own, what else could it have been?
