So i had unproteceted sex on the 9th of july , i was expecting my period on the 29th but it arrived on the 20th so i had an early period. It was normal, lasted 6 days although day 7 and 8 it was like brownish and normally it last 6 days so it was 2 days longer.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you are not on any other form of birth control measure and if you were during your fertile days at time of intercourse, chances of pregnancy could be present. Wait and watch for your next periods (which if regular should come as per your menstrual cycle length). Look out for development of any other new symptoms if you suspect chances of pregnancy. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates (variation of upto 10 days is considered to be normal), or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
