7 week old teething, or is it something else?

My 7 week old son is showing some symptoms of teething already, but they could also be symptoms of a stomach bug. He has spit up more than normal the last several days, seems to be drooling excessively, wants his hands, blanket, or binky in his mouths at all times, doesn't want to be put down EVER, and has diarrhea (not watery, but much more liquid than normal). He isn't always showing discomfort, but it comes in phases (more cranky moments than happy ones). Does this seem to be teething, or is it possibly just a stomach bug?

Running any fever? Eating normally?

It's probably too early for teething. Most of the websites I've seen say infants can start teething "as early as 3 months."
