In brief: Too many possibiliti

Likely hiatus hernia or acid reflux vs arthritis of ribs.
Unlikely pericarditis. Much more history is needed re your age, ... And the brown discharge. You definitely need to see your health care providers (gyn/pcp). Stay off dairy products, lose weight if overweight, get tested for h pylori & possibly do upper GI x-ray + abdominal ultrasound. Hrs, md. www.thepmc.org.

In brief: More data needed

Much more history is needed to give a helpful answer. If you are between 13-50 years old and have previously had regular menses, a pregnancy test and gynecologic examination are likely appropriate.
