In brief: Maybe. See your doc

From the picture, you're a canine? See your vet.
If you're a human, see your doc. Clay colored stools can be a sign of serious problems, including blockage of bile as may be seen in tumors of bile ducts or pancreas. Meds, such as antacids, and supplements can cause color change, change in stool consistency, and frequency as well. Get checked..

In brief: Malabsorption?

Clay-like, greasy grey stools can be a sign of malabsorption.
If that's what your stools or like, you should see a doctor.
