Why my feces is black, runny and slimy?

My fecies is black runny and slimy last four days. Not really black, yet kinda. The stool has not been hard tho. Stomach does not hurt and have drank 5 to 7 bottles of water a day, ate approx. two sandwiches a day roughly. Also had a couple tablespoons of nutella.

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, the consistency, odor, color of fecal material is depends upon the diet taken and it is not due to the illness unless some have some symptoms till then it could be normal one and it is nothing to worry, hope this information helps.
