Yes: Brown discharge is just a little bit of old blood mixed with your discharge, nothing to be worried about. If bright red blood then i would go to l;d to be evaluated. And you're right, sometimes a little bleeding is normal after sex. Be sure to discuss with your doctor and if worsens go directly to l;d. Best wishes.
