Could be something more serious.  White, or light colored stools mean that bile is not emptying as it should.  Bile comes from the liver, gets stored in the gallbladder and empties into the small intestine to help digest fats.  Time for a vet visit!

would she have other symptoms??

It depends.  If it were due to something like pancreatitis, then yes.  You would see a whole lot of spectacular vomiting - even water.  Pancreatitis can be lethal, is extremely painful and must be treated in hospital.  That's just one example.  Of course, there could be a liver problem brewing if bile isn't being secreted and other symptoms haven't shown up yet.

How's she doing?
