I've been having midcycle pink and brown spotting for 5 days and heavy discharge with no odor. Is this normal?

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. Or find the infection. Read more

I noticed pink and brown spotting about 4 days before ovulation day. Is this too early for a ovulation spotting?

Not sure: I am not familiar with the the term "ovulation spotting."
Of course, there are many possibilities; but my suspicion for rupturing Nabothian cysts (e.g. pimples on the cervix) is slightly elevated. Keep an eye on it for now. If the bleeding gets heavier (like a period) and/or you soak a full strength feminine pad in 30 minutes to an hour, get checked out ASAP. Read more

She have a pinkish brown spotting discharged what does it mean?

Depends.: The brownish tint suggests that the blood has been in the uterus for a while before it came out. Pinkish means it's a small amount of blood diluted by other fluids in the uterus and vagina. If you want to know what it means, we need information about the pattern of the spotting. Does it come between periods, after intercourse or after a period. With that information, we can answer that too. Read more
