Probably nothing: Midcycle bleeding is not rare. Brown just means old blood that has been sitting in the back of the vagina for a long time. If this is not normal for you then it should correct itself over the next few days. Consider taking birth control for cycle regulation and contraception.

See Gynecologist: Any menstrual cycle longer than 1 week is abnormal. See your gynecologist for evaluation. Depending on your age, there may be different investigations or interventions. (see my previous answer to another similar question). If you are soaking/bleeding through a pad an hour, you need to go to the er for evaluation.

Mid-cycle spotting?: May be a sign that something isn’t quite right, which may warrant a call or a visit with your gynecologist. Could be associated with any of the following: cervical disorders, implantation (getting pregnant), hormonal products/meds, trauma associated with intercourse, iud, ovulation or lack of it, ovarian cyst and the list goes on. I hope you can see why it's important to speak with your gyn.

An egg...: Likely ovulation. Mid period you ovulate so that an egg has a chance to meet sperm and possibly get pregnant. It's common for woman to have spotting.

Timing? : If its at the regular time then it's just a weird cycle. If its at the wrong time then it's just breakthrough bleeding. If it continues the next few cycles then see your doctor. Brown just means old blood.

Something: Menstrual cycles generally occur every 21-45 days apart, and anything more frequent than this indicates a medical problem that needs to be treated. There are many potential causes and only a thorough exam and evaluation will make the diagnosis. See your physician.
