Brownish discharge: It is possible that your menses is slightly abnormal this month, and if this is the first time that this has happened I suggest waiting till next meses to see if it straighten out. If you didn't use contraception there is the possiblity that you've conceived, and i'd suggest a home pregnancy test.

Having clear mucus discharge with some small white clumps. Period should have arrived yesterday should be starting soon. Having PMS sympts. Virgin?

Likely hormones: The discharge sounds normal and if there has been some fluctuation of your hormones, the period may be off a couple days and still be 'normal'. There are many things that can influence the hormones. Poor diet, lack of exercise, uncontrolled stress, excess caffeine, dehydration, vit b6 and magnesium deficiencies will worsen your pms.

Schedule IUD check: Bleeding on Mirena (levonorgestrel) is highly variable. Most bleed and spot for the first few weeks and then periods dramatically lighten with 50% not having a period by 1 year. There is wide variations in the bleeding pattern typical of Progesterone only methods. Irregular bleeding is expected and does not mean the iud does not work. If you are concerned please schedule an iud check with your obgyn.
