If symptoms see MD: This could be just a hormonal fluctuation causing a bit of irregular bleeding. Small amounts of blood that is in the vagina for a while can look brown. However, it could also besomething more serious. If you think you are pregnant or if you are having any other symptoms like itching, discharge or pain i would definitely suggest a trip to get a healthcare provider evaluation right away.
