    Colored water around stool

    Lately I have been noticing that if I spend more time (like 10 - 15 minutes...) on the toilet a red-ish/brown-ish color will start to seep from my stool and form a cloud in the water on the bottom of the toilet. Although this doesn't happen everytime...

    I cannot really say it's blood or blood-colored,because it has more of a brown tint and the color is similar to the color of the poo.

    The stool itself doesn't have any discoloration on the top of it and the consistency is fine. There also isn't any discoloration on the toilet paper after I wipe.

    Three days ago I ate meatballs in tomato sauce and yesterday I ate a red sausage (has a lot of red food dye in it) - could it be this? Or simply the poo dissolving in the water and leaving trace like this?

    No one could possibly tell you what it is other than having it tested to see if there is indeed blood within your stool. It could also be a food product that your body is unable to break down properly or absorb. For example, I can not eat white fish without creating an orangey oil substance (similar to the oil found in spag bol). The reason being, I can't absorb the food properly, so it doesn't get processed properly.

    It could also be mucus. Like i said, though, no one can tell you what it is or what it isn't. Only way to find out is to get it checked out.

    It is true that no one can tell you what it is without getting checked by a Dr. However, I will say that colon cancer at your age is pretty rare (about 1/50000), and even more rare if you don't have a family history of early colon cancer.

    Indigestible dye is a possibility as are many other benign conditions. If it worries you get it checked by a Dr. Gastroenterologists are the specialists that deal with the digestive system.
