Pathologically, the yellow-colored stool is due to high fecal fat concentration, and in such cases, there are large, bulky, and malodorous stools. This is termed steatorrhea. But in your case, there is no foul smell, and the stool is not large or bulky, which rules out the textbook definition of steatorrhea at present. One reason is that more dietary fat consumption causes stool appearance.
You should examine your bowel movements (number of times you are going to the washroom, visual inspection of stool) and monitor for any other symptoms, and try to eliminate if there is any increased dietary consumption of fat. As of now, there is no need to worry about it.
I hope this helps.
