On levofloxacin oral following a nasty kidney infection, is it normal for my spleen to seemingly be in overdrive and my stool to be reddish in color?

In brief: Splenomegaly

If your spleen is enlarged this is common with pyelonephritis, and in one series was present in 50% of patients.
If your stool is red it should be tested for blood and if positive you need a full detailed evaluation.
