Black stool?

I asked the doctor about this today, and he just said that if it persists, I'll need to see a gastro specialist. Was wondering what you girls think, though.

I'm 16 weeks pregnant. Lastnight when I went to the bathroom, it was almost black. SUPER dark. I wouldn't say like, black like a crayon, but dark enough brown to where it's hard to tell. I am not on iron supplements at all, so that's not the cause. I do have hemorrhoids, I think because when I go, there's a tiny dot of bright red blood on the toilet paper, and it hurts down there.

Anyway, no vomiting blood, no horrific stomach pain. Though, I am getting over a UTI/possible kidney infection, and there's been pretty frequent pain on my right side, above my hipbone, below my ribcage. Kind of in the kidney area, as it hurts into my back as well.

Have also been REALLY constipated. When I went yesterday, I'm pretty sure that's the first time I'd gone in 7 days.

Any ideas?
