Pale stool could be due to obstruction of bile duct and thus your bile which is secreted from liver for digestion is not mixing with your food and so stool can be pale instead of yellow. Next step is USG abdomen. It may so wether obstruction is present or its due to other causes.

The next step would be to get an ultrasound of the upper abdomen.
