In brief: Medical eval needed.

These changes in bowel habitus are not normal.
Black stool - if tarry & malodorous could represent bleeding. The obvious blood in stool also warrants assessment. You need assessment to see if you have an inflammatory or infectious condition that is causing these changes. Take care.
