Okay so.. Long story short, our water was off so we didn't flush everytime we went. I pooped the other night and when it came out it was brown. The next day it had turned white/grey. It was not the same color it was the day before. I was eating mostly asparagus, spinach and chicken and have been taking some activated charcoal to help with candida but now this has me worried.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Stool colour getting clay / white colour is likely due to activated charcoal because it absorbs most of the bilirubin, a pigment which gives colour to the stool. Wait and observe if the colours remains the same or you get pain in epigastrium consult your physician and let them have a look.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
