Thanks for posting your query.
The low and fluctuating levels of HCG with mild brownish spotting is suggestive of a chemical pregnancy. A chemical pregnancy is the clinical term used for a very early miscarriage. In many cases, the weakly positive pregnancy test is achieved before the woman’s period is due but a miscarriage occurs.

Most chemical pregnancies are due to chromosomal problems in the developing fetus. Other possible causes are inadequate uterine lining, uterine abnormalities both congenital or acquired like fibroids, low hormone levels, luteal phase defect or certain infections.
Potential treatments include vitamin B6 (at least 50mg a day), progesterone cream, and baby asprin. Be sure to discuss potential treatments with your doctor.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
The mild fluctuation in the HCG levels and the symptoms you are having are likely to be due to mild hormonal disturbance. Your period is likely to start in next few days. These symptoms will subside once the bleeding starts.
Hope my answer is helpful.
