At 21 it would be extremely rare for you to have colon cancer. Your symptoms are very common with IBS. IBS affects about 25 million Americans, while colon cancer at your age affects a few hundred.
I would still go to your doctor and let them know whats going on. A good relationship with your doctor is always recommended, but I wouldnt have fears of colon cancer. Could be a hundred different and more likely things going on.
