Color varies: The color of menstrual blood varies and is not usually something we pay a lot of attention to. If your period is coming at the usual time this this is likely your period. If your periods are irregular consider seeing an Obgyn to discuss options for regulation

Late menses: Michelle, the most common reason for late peroid is pregnancy. Having a pregnancy test 7 days over could be that the hormone in you urine is not high enough to make this positive. If you are on birth control then the pill could be causing loss of peroid. If you are healthy with no problems then wait and get a first morning urine to check at approx. 2weeks.

See your doctor: Brown/black discharge is typically light bleeding. There are lots of causes of such bleeding, including pregnancy, stds, other infections, polyps, or fibroids. Mathis can also happen with birth control pills. You should see your doctor to be sure.

The fact that you: are late may not be related to the episode of digital penetration. If you have had sexual intercourse (penile) than a pregnancy test may be warranted.
