No, but see a doctor: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician.

2 weeks before expected period had brown discharge lasted two days. Now have bad heartbearn and late period. Neg hpt few days ago. What could it be?

Might be normal: 2 weeks before your period, you ovulated. Around ovulation, related to an abrupt drop in estrogen, you can have some breakthrough bleeding or brownish discharge. With the late period and other pregnancy like symptoms, I would recheck the pregnancy tesst. If you still do not get a period, then it is likely that you ovulated late and your cycle is delayed. ...Read more

Light brown discharge for 2 days about two weeks after plan b and 3 days before expected period preg? Now late period Took 3 plan b one steps in wk.5

About Plan B...: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. If the pregnancy test is negative 3 weeks after Plan B, that means a woman is not pregnant from that episode. ...Read more

Hormonal changes: Periods happen as the hormone levels in your body decrease as part of a physiologic process. While most women expect their period to come on at the same time each month, there is variation on when the periods may come. If your pregnancy test is negative; you are just experiencing a delay in your periods.
If it persists on a regular basis, you can set up a consult with me to discuss this.
