Poo, or faeces, or shit, turds (lots of different words for the stuff) is the waste that the gut produces from the food we eat. Most people go to the toilet once or twice a day, but this can vary hugely between individuals. What may be normal for you may be completely different to your best friend! If there should be a dramatic change in your poo which lasts more than a few days (for example, you start going much more frequently, or your poo becomes very runny) then you should get some advice from your family doctor. You should also go and see your doctor if you notice blood in your poo, or mucous/slime, as this may be a sign of something wrong in your gut, or if you have tummy pains which are not getting better, or you are losing weight unintentionally.
