Any thing odd: In your diet. If not get checked at your ped's office. You should bring a stool sample in a clean sealed container, which the will want to end to the lab.

See your pediatricMD: It is more likely than not something you are eating. With that said , you will need a physical exam and interview from your doctor. They may determine that you need additional lab work or testing. This will be based on their findings with your interview, exam and past medical history.
