hello dear
if there is brown discharge then it is a reason to worry
take complete bed rest with foot end elevated
restrict all the moments
now about the 2 week difference,
it may happen sometime in late conceiving of pregnancy
like your lmp is 31st march but if you conceive on 17th or 18th day of your periods then already 1 week late
and 3-4 days late development is normal in such cases so nothing to worry on that path
just follow your doctor's advice strictly and take proper rest
after 10 days if your fetus viability is normal then nothing to worry at all
all the best

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The weeks you calculated are right as 8 weeks as from LMP but there can be chances of late conception in few females so the conception can be late by a week or two.The main reason to worry is no fetal node cardiac activity which should have been visible;and the dark brown discharge.Please repeat ultrasound scan after 7-10 days as advised if the cardiac activity is not seen by that time then may be you have to go for D&C as result of a possible miscarriage.
