Delivered baby, getting dark brown periods. Is that normal?

Hi, I gave birth to my son at the end of December, I had a period 6 weeks later and it was heavier then normal and I was told by my doctor that it was normal. I started my period the next month but it was really dark brown blood and was the entire time. I just started my period today and it is the same dark brown blood and I was wondering if it is normal. The bleeding only lasts for about 5-7 days like a normal period but I am wondering why it is brown because it has never been that way before. Can you please help?

Do you have any vaginal discharge outside periods?
