In brief: See your doctor.

There are many possible causes of diarrhea, most of which are self-limited and resolve on their own in a week or two.
Since yours has been going to longer, I think you should see your doctor to help sort out the problem. In the meantime, try increasing the amount of fiber in your diet and drinking plenty of fluids. Good luck.
