Brown discharge BEFORE af?


So I’m thinking (despite being a few days late) that AF is coming. I have brown discharge? This I sometimes get after AF, never had this had before. It shouldn’t be old blood as last af was 06-08 November. But whatever, it is what it is...

I’m guessing it’s normal to have this? But of course, I’m still hanging onto hope that this isn’t the case. Anyone else had just the brown discharge but no period??

Thanks girls
