Blood from an upper GI bleed will turn black but it tends to look like coffee grounds.  Many things can turn a solid stool very dark, one of which is pepto-bismol...and various other foods.

Please don't worry.  This happened to me once.  I panicked and ended up in the ER.  Apparently beets eaten 2 days earlier was the culprit.  Food can cause black stool.
