You may need to: check for a vaginal infection. If there are no other symptoms, such as vaginal itching, odor, etc. then you may be starting irregular spotting/ periods with your hormone cycle at your age. It could be very early on, or minor spotting may be a fluke. But if it continues, you may need to see a GYN or family physician to help you regulate your cycle to be more predictable. ...Read more

Brown blood suggests old blood, so i would not necessarily worry unless you're having other symptoms such as pain or discharge other than blood or fever. Just wait until next period. ...Read more

Unclear question: If you are concerned about being pregnant, If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Late period: If your period is late, it's time to take home pregnancy test, assuming that you've engaged in unprotected sex. Vaginal discharge can also be due to sexually transmitted diseases. So if discharge returns and home pregnancy test is negative, it's time to see your Family Doc or GYN. ...Read more
