First of all, you should undergo one blood test for beta-HCG and TVS scan to confirm/ exclude pregnancy at the earliest. Some times early brown spotting and late period may indicate implantation bleeding.

Other reasons are hormonal imbalance, vaginal infection, stress/ anxiety, thyroid problem, weight gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits, psychological factor etc.

Need to investigate properly to pin point the diagnosis by complete hormone assay, thyroid profile, blood sugar & prolactin level, vaginal swab test etc. Consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance and medication.

Avoid stress/ tension, take healthy diet with Vitamin & iron supplements, control body wt, maintain genital hygiene and take sound sleep.

Be well and take care.

OBGYN Dr. Shanti Vennam's  Response
Since you had an unprotected intercourse during the fertile period and then missed your period, you should suspect pregnancy. The spotting seen could be an implantation bleed. A pregnancy test taken at this stage should have been positive. Failure to show up properly depends on the technique of performing the test and the kit itself. You can repeat the test after a couple of days with an early morning fresh sample of urine or better still, go for a serum beta-hCG measurement followed by a trans-vaginal sonogram. See your health care provider for further advice. Take care.
