Could be blood: Brown discharge could actually be blood that has turned brown upon exposure to air. Spotting during early pregnancy is common. However, it might be best to see a doctor, since there is a small chance that the bleeding could be a sign of a miscarriage.

No: No. It could be something simple but you need to get checked. Don't take chances. It could mean that you are dilating, and it's too early for that!
