Welcome to e health forum.

Yes, it is possible that your stool discoloration can be due to undigested food that you might have ingested.

Your symptoms can be due to indigestion or related to gastritis, which in most cases subside on their own. If the symptoms are intolerable, you might consult with your doctor for a examination and appropriate advice.

In the mean time, trying Over the counter medications like tums, mylanta and / or peptobismol might be helpful to resolve your symptoms.
