Is it true that Tan colored stool or slightly yellow colored stool could be a sign/symptom of a bowel obsturction? My stool has been looser, and light brown/tan colored and looks yellow on TP when I wipe for the last few months. Is this a symptom of a bowel obstruction or something else. LET ME KNOW

Basically, if you had a bowel obstruction, you would not be passing any stool. You would have severe stomach pains, you would not be able to open your bowels and due to this your stomach would probably be quite swollen. You may also be vomiting fecal fluid. If you have any of these symptoms then you need to go to the ER straight away.

Other than that, pale stools can be caused by what you eat, or can indicate possible gallbladder problems.

Yes it does and this can happen when you have a bowel obstruction. If you are unable to open your bowels due to an obstruction somewhere, then your feces cannot exit your body via the normal route and you can get nauseated and start to vomit fecal fluid. This is not nice at all and needs urgent medical attention and probably surgery.
