Im 18 & been having brown discharge after diarrhea for 4 days. Also have been gassy. Could this be IBS or signs of ovarian cancer?

In brief: Not likely
Certainly not compatible with ovarian ca.
Possibly ibs but would need to review symptoms much more comprehensively. Ibs has to start somewhere, but 4 days of diarrhea by itself is inadequate for diagnosis. Much more likely to be normal variation, something you are eating, or mild intestinal infection. Brown d/c is a little more concerning. If it persists after diarrhea is gone get it checked.
