I'm 18 and lately i've been having dark stool although I have no stomach pains. However i had blackberries about weeks ago could that be the reason?

Not blackberries: Especially if they were "weeks" ago. Could be iron / some meds / or slow blood loss, so need seen by dr for exam and possibly blood work.
