Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active without protection around your ovulation time, then the spotting before your actual periods could suggest chances of pregnancy. Few women experience spotting/brown discharge few days before starting with actual periods. The underlying cause is believed to be the hormonal changes causing changes in endometrial lining. If symptoms like foul smell, itching, discomfort etc are associated, then the brown discharge could also suggest possibility of infection. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
