Changes in menses: If you are sexually active (even if you use contraception), it's always worth checking for pregnancy. That's the most common reason for missing a period. If the test is negative, then the dark brown tissue is your next period starting, and things are just a bit off this month. That happens to most women at some point, for a variety of reasons. Nobody has completely regular periods all the time.
