Hi.  From your age alone, a diagnosis of colon cancer is doubtful.  Dark stools or stools which darken the water in the bowl may be due to something you ate.  If, for example, you're taking iron containing vitamin supplements, this could produce the kind of situation you described. If you're experiencing other symptoms aside from the dark stools (e.g. fever, abdominal pain, or a persistent urge to move your bowels), you may need to have yourself examined by a doctor just to make sure it isn't anything serious.  But rest assured that it's most likely NOT cancer.
