I found this poop today. Corny had gut problems (gas and loss apetite) 2 week ago and I gave him cimeticon and probiotics(vet told me to do it). He is okay now but what does poop mean? Is it serious problem?

Please take your piggy off of any fresh veg and instead feed only hay to your piggy. This will allow your piggy’s gut to settle.
Switch from weekly weighing to daily weighing so you can monitor his hay intake (any weight loss means he isn’t eating enough) and step in with syringe feeding if he is losing weight/has loss of appetite.
Giving a probiotic is a good idea.
Please also see your vet again for further advice if being off veg does not normalise his poops.

It may be his gut isn’t quite back to normal. Have you been giving him veg? I’d consider taking him off them completely until his poo is back to normal for at least 24 hours. When you reintroduce you can start with herbs (coriander) as they’re milder on the stomach.

It can take them a while to get over a gut disturbance/bloat episode.
If his poops aren’t normal, then don’t give any veg at all. Just feed him hay and his normal one tablespoon of pellets to let his gut have time to settle again.

Have you been weighing him regularly? Do switch to daily weighing while a piggy is unwell as it is the only way to know they really are eating enough hay,

The guides I linked in in my first reply give further information
