Firstly, you should immediately consult a specialist for assessing your pregnancy status. You should get a pelvic/ trans-vaginal sonogram and look the cause and source of the bleeding. If the pregnancy is viable, it is a threatened abortion. Otherwise, it is a missed pregnancy. A threatened abortion needs absolute bed rest, avoidance all strenuous activity and sexual intercourse until all symptoms subside and the pregnancy stabilizes. Your doctor may give you hormone supplementation if needed. You should avoid travel strictly. Hope this information is useful. Wish you good health.

Hello Meena
Thanks for your query.
There could be various reasons for your problem.
First is an impending miscarriage.
When the pregnancy is not growing normally, there could be slight brownish discharge. However in absence of pain , cramps etc, it is less likely to be dangerous.
Sometimes, mild spotting is common in early pregnancy, and is of no consequence.
Anxiety, stress, jerky travel, hectic lifestyle all could be responsible.
Please consult a gynecologist and have an ultrasound to know the viability of the pregnancy.
Meanwhile, take rest, avoid travelling and take adequate pregnancy support medications as will be prescribed to you.
take care.
