6 week old baby poo - 2 different sorts - any ideas?

My 6 week old ds2 is breastfed (although now had 2 small bottles of EBM) and most of the time his poos are the usual bright yellow mustard colour and quite runny but sometimes he has bits of darker colour which are thicker and I'm not sure what this is about. Sometimes it's all in one place and other times it's like bits of powery lumps around (hard to explain).

I wouldn't be so bothered but he's definitely suffering with something and has done since he was 9/10 days old. It's possible silent reflux but still trying to work it out.

I've got our 6 week post natal check with the GP today but I'm asking you lovely people first because I don't have much faith in the GPs most of the time.

Any ideas?
