Dark stool?

I woke up this morning and used the restroom, after I finished I looked in the toilet and noticed my stool was half light brown and half a dark tarry black color. This is the second time this has happened and the first time it only lasted that one time. Both times I had chocolate cake before I went to bed, could that be what it is?

I would not worrie about it at all

Hope this helps
