The poop looks ok to me, and if the tortoise is new to you, then the runny nose is just a symptom of stress, not illness. Just wait until it settles in to its new environment before you start to worry. Please read our pinned threads shown at the top of our Russian tortoise section, and make sure you have the animal set up like it should be.

I apologise if this grosses anyone out but I am still new to tortoises, but is this poop healthy or not and should I be concerned.
I also should say her nose looks runny like she has a cold. Also some people said she was a wild caught tort. How can you tell if she is wild caught.

She needs a bigger water dish. A clay saucer works best. One she can fit into and deep enough it comes up to just pass where the top and bottom shell meet.
She also needs a minimum of 4x8 foot enclosure.
