Welcome to ehealthforum,
The brown discharge could be due to the old blood coming out after intercourse (resulting in orgasm and uterine contractions) as you had recently had your periods. The sperms can remain alive in pre-cum for hours if there has not been urination after ejaculation and if this pre-cum comes in contact with vagina, pregnancy can result. If the prior ejaculation was more than 24 hours ago and if the person has had urination after ejaculation (before intercourse), then chances of sperms being present in pre-cum can be ruled out. Wait and watch for your periods.
Take care.
