Welcome to ehealthforum.
The shorter and lighter periods, brown discharge, sore breasts, abdominal cramps, increased tiredness, bloating could suggest chances of pregnancy (if you had been sexually active without protection after your last periods or during your fertile days). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
