If this only happened twice in 8 weeks, it is likely due to something you ate. Perhaps keep a food diary and keep track of what you are eating and then note when the watery stools occur to see if there is a food culprit identified. See a doctor if it gets worse, if you notice bloody stool or if you develop abdominal pain with it or any other concerning symptoms. Good luck!
