Colonoscopy today

I have a few questions, wondering if anyone has gone through the same thing...sorry if this may be kinda long.

I went to the doctor a month or so ago. My initial symptoms were horrible diarrhea-at least 10 to 15 times a day-cramps, a pain in the mid section of my back on the right side, nausea, vomiting, chills, and various other things I can't think of...over the month it has gotten worse. Recently my stool has been bright yellow. Initially they were thinking Crohns disease. Either that or a small chance of colon cancer. I had my colonoscopy today, and they found nothing. However, the dr still took some biopsies. My question is, why would they take biopsies if they found nothing? I should have asked but was too out of it when I left and didn't think about it. Anyone have any of these symptoms with a negative colonoscopy? I'm very confused as to what's going on now.

I forgot to add that my tests came back as having white blood cells in my stool and I'm anemic.
