Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
At 5 weeks pregnancy, the presence of a reddish or brownish jelly like discharge from vagina is worrisome. If it is only a spotting then it is likely to be due to implantation bleeding.
In case the discharge is persistent then vaginal infection, threatened abortion or ectopic pregnancy needs to be ruled out after ultrasound scan and an examination by your gynecologist.

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.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
