Stool test for 8 monthold

My son was exclusively breastfed till 6 months. Have not given him formula milk till now. Solids were started in the 6th month. My son passed stool with blood in it last month. Occult blood was not present in stool test, he was on antibiotics as pus cells were high. Last week again blood was seen in his stool. We did stool test and no occult blood was found. Pus cells were plenty. Yesterday again we saw blood. Did a stool test today and occult blood was detected. He was on breastfeed only today. He is being given Lanzol 15 and Neopeptine drops. Wanted to know if there is anything I need to be careful about and why this is occurring. Please help.
