Right side of stomach swollen, please help??

In the past week, I had a day of abdominal pain + loose stools, 2 days of normal bm (one night the BM came out quite yellowish) and a day where my BM was very loose brownish in color with murky water. Overall, just a mess, normal then abnormal and repeat.

Cutting to the chase, this week I've been very stressed, several projects and proposals due, along with tests that will decide where I will be situated for the next few years. I've been eating 1 to 2 meals a day mostly, sometimes the second meal will be a muffin or two. The right lower side of my tummy gurgles on and off, and generally I just don't feel 100% at all. So today I looked down at my stomach and noticed that the right side of the belly button area is a little swollen, about 1cm more than the left side. I pressed on and around it, no pain.

So now I'm just a little freaked out, I don't have time to worry about my health at the moment. Hopefully I can get some feedback from people here.

Too Long Didn't Read?

-a week of one day bad BM, one day good BM
-abdominal pain for one of the days
-high levels of stress, but still manageable
-lots of gurgling on the right lower side of stomach
-right side of belly button area swollen, is 1cm "taller" than the left side

Any advice would really be greatly appreciated. I've had a stool sample done on Monday, results are not back yet - the doctor will call if something is wrong.
