26 year old with endometriosis and dermoid ovarian cyst. Have brownish spotting, mild periods. Is this an ectopic pregnancy?

I am 26 have endemetriosis and a dermoid cyst on ovary less than 1.5 cm. I am in my second round of clomid 50 mg. First month my cycle was 36 days and i ovulated. this month i am not sure if ovulation took place and i am on day 47 but today had very slight pain and brownish blood. The flow was light and has stopped. Could I be having an ectopic pregnancy?

This sounds more like implantation bleeding. In ectopic the pain is usually more and continuous and mostly on one side either the left or the right depending upon which side the ectopic is.
I suggest that you take a pregnancy test. If it is positive, a transvaginal ultrasound with doppler must be done at the earliest to localize the pregnancy and rule out an ectopic as well as confirm your date of delivery.
Hope this helps. Take care and have a good day.
