In brief: I would not use any

Antibiotics without having this medically evaluated.
This warrants prompt medical evaluation. Take care.

In brief: Probably not

You could have an enteric infection or colitis.
You need stool culture, c.Difficile toxin test for starters and may need to see a gastroenterologist and get a colonoscopy. Shotgun empiric therapy is a bad idea.
