Not normal, get care: Any new or unexplained vaginal discharge needs professional evaluation. Colored discharge (yellow, green, tan, brown) often means infection. In sexually active women, STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomonas are frequent causes, although gonorrhea and chlamydia are uncommon at your age (30). In any case, see your doctor and take it from there. Good luck!

While on birth control is it normal to have brown discharge after your period ?

Can be : Brown just indicates old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina waiting to come out. No big deal.
