Thanks for posting your query.

Brownish discharge normally indicates bloody discharge.When ever there is slight amount of bleeding from any where in the tract,by the time it comes out it becomes brown in color.

There could be some common reason for this like some infection or erosion in the area.As you are using condom the infection is less likely yet possible.

The best thing you need to do it visit a primary care / Gynecologist by appointment and get an examination done. After examination only the cause can be found and treated. It can be normal too.

There is nothing to get alarmed but diagnosis and treatment is must.

I hope this answers your query,I will be available for follow up.
