brown-with-yellow-goo stool--help?

hi there,

i am 25 years old. decent diet, usually hit the whole food pyramid every day. i take a fiber supplement every day as well.

sooo... last week, i started having stools that were partly brown and perfect (like usual with fiber supplement!) but wrapped/smeared in this yellow "goo". it's been that way ever since last week. don't really have any other symptoms such as feeling gasy. ??? i am wondering if the fiber supplement is keeping my poop from being diarrhea ??? i did go down to key west two weeks ago -- i have been doing online research and i am wondering if it is giardia? i did eat in an all-you-can-eat seafood place in key west that was awful -- in the bathroom there wasn't even toilet paper!

i can provide discreet pictures if necessary i don't have insurance right now so going to the doctor would cost me a lot .. if it's something that can take a normal course in 2-4 weeks, etc. then i can endure the odd poop.

thanks so much for any time invested in my question!!
