In brief: Several possible

if any bleeding then inflammatory bowel disease would fit well--a serious autoimmune disease with a strong increased risk of needing surgery and/or cancer.
BUT, also possible is irritable bowel syndrome with exactly these symptoms, NO inflammation, tests all negative, colonoscopy negative. would need a colonoscopy to tell which.
