Welcome to ehealthforum.
The brown discharge, sore breasts, cramps do suggest possibility of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests can show negative results even though you are pregnant (false negative results). If pregnancy is suspected then a blood HCG level test should be done to confirm/rule out pregnancy. You can get pregnant sooner or later after stopping pill use depending on how fast your body gets readjusted to normal hormonal pattern resulting in ovulation (egg release from ovary). Visit a gynecologist for examination and blood HCG levels to be tested to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
