Probably period: Brown equals old blood. It sounds like that was your period although likely not a normal period for you. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy.

Period may have: begun early with old blood initially mixed with newer blood later. Brown suggests older blood being expelled from the uterus.
