Recently my stool is two toned, half is normal brown colour and half is a lighter slightly orange colour, no blood or anything, is this normal?

Stool Color: Stool color is not important unless there is no color at all or it is bloody. Melena which is black sticky foul smelly stool signifies blood as well and is important. Otherwise green, brown, orange or shades thereof don't mean anything.
