What does it mean when you have dark brown discharge then it turns red?

Blood clot

Blood
You are probably seeing a clot which has a brownish surface but when you break the discharge, the inner part is brighter red blood. Make sure this is not related to your period or early pregnancy because otherwise, you need further questioning and examination by your doctor.

I have dark brown discharge its the 3rd day that its heavy. What does it mean? I'm also Irregular so i really don't know when will I have my period.

Unpredictable

Menstrual_cycle
Unfortunately, if you have irregular periods, your bleeding patterns and amount will vary. Brown disharge is older blood, therefore this could be your period or an anovulatory bleed. This means that you have irregular bleeding because you don't ovulate every month. You should see a gyn to undergo a complete workup for irregular bleeding. Anovulatory cycles can put you at risk for cancer.

Having dark brown discharge for over a week. What could this mean?

Probably period

Stringio
Brown equals old blood. It sounds like that was your period although likely not a normal period for you. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy.
