I threw up about 3 or 4 times one day ago, had diarrhea and black stool. Are these symptoms of the flu? If so how long do they last ?

In brief: See a doctor
Tarry stools can be a sign of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract.
"flu" is actually a respiratory illness with fevers, sneezing and cough". This sounds very different.

In brief: Black stool
Is worrisome for gastric source of bleeing, either ulcer or tumor or gastritis especially if you didn't take peptobismol.
Get it checked out promptly. Unlikely due to flu.
