In brief: Usu diet/minor virus

If you are fine now, a brief episode of diarrhea in a healthy person may be due to something in your diet or to a minor viral infection.
If you continue to have symptoms, make an appointment with your physician. Pay attention to see if there are any foods that seem to regularly give you diarrhea such as, for example, dairy products. Black or bloody diarrhea should get checked by a doctor.
