Welcome to ehealthforum.
The brownish tinge to the ‘cum’ could be due to two reasons depending on the timing of your last menstrual periods:
1) Retained blood from previous period that could be pushed out due to the uterine contractions during sexual intercourse.
2) If you were nearing ovulation at the time of the intercourse, it could also be due to ovulation.
If there is no foul smell or itching associated, then you can leave it alone. If these are associated, or you have repeated such episodes, then discuss with your healthcare provider/doctor about getting examination and further tests done to rule out any serious issues.
All the best.
