Stool color changes on PPI's?

This is kind of gross and a long story sorry haha, well im 16 and on my period at the moment if it has anything to do with it. But about a year ago i was dealing with some anorexia, and i developed what i thought was a stomach ulcer, so i went to my doctor and she said it sounded like the symptoms of an ulcer and prescribed 30mg of prevacid, i took it no side effects what so ever and all the symptoms stopped. So fast forward to now, a couple weeks ago a relapsed a little bit [about 800 calories a day] for a couple days, and started to get the burning stomach,burping,burning mostly at night and when i didn't eat again, and throwing up in the morning (only one time and it was bile) So i went back to a different doctor [who knows me for having extreme bouts of hypochondria, panic attacks, and anxiety] so i don't think he took me very seriously, which maybe he shouldn't but he prescribed me 30mg of prevacid. Today was my 3rd day on it and i have noticed a grey/light green clay color, with dark green mixed in stool. (this has only happened today, never before) i had some anxiety earlier and some uncomfort breathing which i think was from the anxiety. But could it be possible that i don't have an ulcer and i messed with my bile/stomach acids? Unless it's possible that pale stools are due to internal bleeding? I'm afraid to drop the PPI though just incase i do have an ulcer and it ruptures, i don't want to bother my doctor since i do that enough.. but is this really serious? please help thank you:}
