In brief: Yes bu in moderation

Has bismuth so in small does should be ok unless you are at risk for premature labor than would avoid altogether.

In brief: No

Peptobismol is not the best choice for diarrhea in pregnancy.
It contains Aspirin like products which are generally not used in pregnancy except in certain conditions. Immodium is a better choice. If if you took a small amount of peptobismol already it is unlikely to cause problems.
