Thank you for posting your question here, I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Brown discharge on its own is nothing to worry about, it is a common thing which happens to a lot of women after intercourse.
Another common reason for brownish discharge is that your endometrial lining didnt clear fully in your last period thats why the left over lining from your last period, is flowing out now. This reason is only valid if you are having your period right now.
Anyway as far as I can tell there is nothing to worry about, unless you are feeling any other symptoms.

I hope this answered your question.
