In brief: Yes, common

Brown discharge is old blood.
It's common to have a little bit of bleeding in pregnancy. If you are spotting on to your underwear, that's something to see your doctor about. Maybe the brown discharge happened after sex? The cervix can be slightly inflamed in pregnancy and sex can cause a little bit of bleeding as well. If you have cramping or more bleeding, call your doctor.
