Given the data you reported, you might be experiencing mid-cycle spotting due to a decline in estrogen levels. It happens when you ovulate or up to a couple of days before ovulation. This bleeding is more often light and pink, but a brown discharge is not unknown, too.

You might want to visit a gynecologist in order to confirm this condition or to do further tests.
