Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice. 1- Did the worms look like spaghetti?

No it looked like a real thin worm it was small

Friend, the worms you saw are roundworms. This can explain the loose stool and the vomiting. Your puppy will need to be dewormed, I would have her rechecked by family veterinarian, they will give you a dewormer called pyrantel (strongid), this will eliminate the worms. In the meantime change her diet to rice and boiled boneless chicken until the stool is back to normal. Do not give over the counter anti diarrhea medication. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service."
