Probably normal: The brown stuff is old blood that has taken a day or two to work its way out after being expelled from the uterus. IF! your menstrual timing, volume and length of flow is otherwise the same, it is fine. many people experience this after a cycle is over as well. You are probably have a day or two of very light/ low volume bleeding prior to the regular flow starting.
