Hello, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Well yes, implantation bleed could be the cause of brownish discharge before periods. So, yes, pregnancy is a possibility. Wait until the next due date of periods and if you miss them, please take a pregnancy test. If you get your periods then the brownish discharge could be due to hormonal imbalance, use of birth control pills, endometriosis, PCOD, local vaginal infection, or due to uterine infection. Hope this helps. Take care!
