Take your puppy to see a veterinarian immediately.  Especially if your puppy is unvaccinated this is an emergency.  Parvo virus is a serious and usually fatal illness if untreated.  Parvo causes bloody diarrhea, vomiting, severe dehydration, anorexia, and full body infection (sepsis).  This needs to be treated aggressively with fluid therapy, supportive care, and antibiotics.  Other causes of diarrhea in puppies include intestinal parasites, dietary indiscretion, and stress.  
When puppies get sick secondary complications can be serious.  Dehydration, hypoglycemia, and hypothermia are serious concerns.  Regardless of the cause these need veterinary medical attention.
