In brief: ~1wk

Green/brown is likely either infection or your normal bacteria being thrown off by antibiotics or something you ate.
Black splotches without pain aren't concerning. Blood or worsening black stools is concerning. I'm assuming you have no other symptoms so it will likely take about a week to clear, eat a bland diet.

In brief: Stool test

I would suggest get a stool test done to rule out infection or blood in stools.
It depends what other symptoms you have , but if you think this is abnormal , must get stool test.
