In brief: Maybe

If the 'light colored stools represent a change - and particularly if especially stinky and/or difficult to flush away - this may represent pancreatic problems.
See a GI md if this is a change...

In brief: Nah...

Lighter colored stools reflect what you have eaten recently.
Unless you are have very loose stools like diarrhea that you have to worry about becoming dehydrated -or - bloody stools, the change in stool color is not to be concerned with. Any new foods? Supplements? Vitamins? Or medications? If so these would explain as well... Best to you!
