Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the abnormal bleeding/brown discharge that you describe without examining you. If pregnancy has been confirmed, you should go ahead with getting serial HCG levels estimated. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. A transvaginal scan done after 6-8 weeks of gestation also helps to confirm fetal heartbeat, gestational age of fetus/baby along with fetal viability (early scans can fail to detect fetal pole/heartbeat). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
