In brief: You may have ulcer

Gastritis or ulcer in stomach can cause bleeding;that may be brown material vomited.
You definitely need evaluation by your physician.

In brief: Evaluation

An obstruction in your small intestine can give you emesis that smells like feces, but your history doesn't seem consistent with an obstruction if this severity.
I would suggest a physical exam and possible an endoscopy to evaluate you.
