See a doctor: the pulsating thing worry me .
if you are super skinny then do not worry too much abou it, but if you are not and still feel pulasting mass see a doctor.
your dark stool reflect what you eat ,drink more water and juices, and eat more fruit and vegetable and less meat and spices you will see a differences in your stool.
if not a doctor might have to do endoscopy to rule out ulcer,or gastritis.
