My fish also have those poop sometime and they are completely fine, it could be just its digestion, but I dont know, still continue to observe him to see any other strange behaviors. Please keep us update of the little guy

Yep, digestive problems or stress.

There is no need to feed antibiotics to a fish with occasional poop like this, especially if he is behaving normally and there are no other symptoms.
