Varies : Signs and symptoms of colon cancer vary tremendously, certainly would be extremely rare in a 19 year old. Abdominal pain, change in bowel movements, unexplained weight loss, abdominal fullness, nausea are among the more common presenting symptoms. I would not hesitate to be seen and discuss directly with a doctor.

Not specifically: Bowel movement color is not a factor to watch for colon cancer unless you see blood. See a doctor for an examination.
