Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Brown discharge may be due to infection, slight vaginal bleeding or contamination with faeces.
Since you are not currently sexually active then infection is not likely. The brown discharge may have been slight old vaginal blood and may have been a lighter than normal period.

The causes for delayed period are: stress but you indicated that this not a problem for you, inadequate nutrition, excess physical activity, polycystic ovarian syndrome, abnormal levels of thyroid hormone or prolactin.

You can consider monitoring to see if your next period is normal and if not then visit your doctor for an evaluation.

I hope this helps

Welcome to HCM,
From your history it suggests that you are having some infection in your genital system and requires evaluation.
Delay of period might be due to some problem in your genital tract.
Consult Gynaec and get examined physically and with ultra sound.
After report she will go for treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
