Get evaluated.: You need a pregnancy test and further evaluation. It is entirely possible that you are pregnant. The brown discharge doesn't sound like a period from your description. Many women in early pregnancy experience a sense of being pre-menstrual: like they are about to start their period. I wonder if that's what the "heaviness" is. I wish i could give you a better answer! good luck. Lgromkomd.
