Most likely bleeding: Gingivitis or inflammation of your gums is extremely prevalent even in 20 year olds. Use an electric tooth brush at night before you go to bed and in the morning. If your saliva is still brown after one week have your mouth evaluated by a professional.

Brown saliva: Not sure other than maybe some blood from sinus or an intraoral infection, sometimes sweating leaves brown stains.
