Prob just blood: Pink discharge is usually just a small amount of blood which is not unusual. Brown is old blood which has been sitting in the back of the vagina. If it continues then you should schedule a visit for an exam including sexually transmitted diseases testing. Consider restarting birth control for cycle regulation and pregnancy prevention.
