Trial: Stop taking the supplement for few days, do everything else the same, diet, other therapy, etc. if the unusual color disappears you got your answer. If the color stays, it is not likely that what you see is due to milk thistle. Orange will be highly unusual for blood to turn into, as blood turns darker most of the time. Hope it helps.
