thank you for query,

Brown vaginal discharge was one of the most nerve-wracking things .brown meant blood and blood meant risk of miscarriage. Thankfully, while this sort of discharge can occasionally indicate that the body is moving towards miscarriage, more often, nothing is wrong at all.
Whenever you see any type of increase in discharge during pregnancy, brown or otherwise, you should talk to your provider. Bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, and UTIs, all present very differently during pregnancy than during other times, and can be dangerous for both mother and fetus if left untreated.
But as far as miscarriage fears, brown blood on its own doesn't mean a lot, because brown blood is old blood. The American Pregnancy Association states that about 20 to 30 percent of women experience some sort of first trimester bleeding, and only about half of those women go on to have a miscarriage. Being part of a small group is certainly no consolation to families who do experience a loss. But if you are currently experiencing discharge, let the statistics be reassuring; odds are on your side that things will be okay.
And consult to gynecologist.
