I ovulated and had symptoms of "ovulation bleeding" egg white mucus with dark brown in it. However, 2 days later I seem to have my period? A fluke?

In brief: See below

You had an unusual menstrual cycle.
However, unusual menstrual cycles don't necessarily mean that there's anything wrong physically. The menstrual cycle is under very delicate hormonal control, which can be influenced by things such as exercise, rapid weight change, emotional stress etc. But to be safe: see your GYN if you continue to have abnormal bleeding.
