Get seen by your: Gynecologist to have this discharge adequately diagnosed.
Bacterial Vaginosis: Sometimes disturbances to the natural bacteria in your vagina (douching, irregular bleeding, unprotected sex, etc) can allow abnl bacteria like Gardnerella to overgrow and cause a fishy odor. It's not sexually transmitted, but can be treated w/ Metronidazole (Flagyl)/Clindamycin/Boric Acid. See your GYN for a prescription and be examined for other potential causes. Nothing urgent/dangerous though.
There is likely: Blood mixed in with your vaginal secretions. Brown is often older blood. However if you develop discharge that has an odor, causes redness, swelling, itching or pain - please get medically evaluated.
I've had brownish discharge for two days. Then the next day when I wiped, it was pink so I put on a pad. The next morning the pad was clean.?
Old blood: The brownish discharge is old menstrual blood mixed with vaginal secretions and usually disappears with the onset of a new cycle.
I usually have 32 day cycles but on day 27 I noticed brown/pink tinged discharge when I wiped for 5 days (no need for a pad). What could this be?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Discharge: Hi I assume this is from the vagina. I would want to know your menstrual history, do a full sexual history, and examine and possibly even culture the discharge. But, this is not normal and should be evaluated by a trusted health care provider.
Depends on...: "pink slimy discharge" means different things to different women. It has to be compared to the particular woman's normal daily vaginal (cervical) mucus discharge. Some women are at risk for std's, some at risk for cancers, and others at risk for both (so a doctor's evaluation is a good idea). Pink mucus could also be normal mucus mixed with a trace of menstrual blood, in a very low-risk woman.
This may well be: An infection. Recommend seeing you gynecologist to assess further.
More info: Many reasons. If persistant see your doc.
Needs exam to tell: It is very difficult to tell you what it is without visual exam and feel of it. If it is bothering you see your doctor or a dermatologist.
Most likely if. ....: You pass a thick mucous discharge, sometimes referred to as the "show", it may be a sign that you may be getting into labor soon or within a few days. Do be sure your bags are packed. Good luck.
