I completely understand your concern and I would try my best to help you.I would like to reassure you that the stools of a young infant can vary in consistency and colour as the gastrointestinal tract undergoes a transition.Please wait while I look at the images and get back

I have added photos of the stool, of the nail as well as something that is growing next to her ear.
Expert:  Srividhya V S replied 17 days ago.
Thank you for posting the clear images.
All images look normal
Expert:  Srividhya V S replied 17 days ago.
The stools are very much normal fir her age..the white lines in the nails are normal as the nails start growing now following slow shredding of the fetal nails.
The swelling near the ears looks like a small furuncle doesn't need any intervention unless she feels pain while touching there.
It can also be a persistent milia which is common skin eruptions in young infants.

Also for the last week my baby starts screaming and crying after we get her out of the bath and nothing can calm her down? What might be the reason?
Expert:  Srividhya V S replied 17 days ago.
That is a common reaction to bath due to temperature change..
Also babies feel very hungry and sleep immediately after bath.
