Thanks for writing to us.
Mild brownish discharge with a faintly positive pregnancy test is indicative of a biochemical pregnancy. In this, the conception has happened but it is defective and it will lead to an early spontaneous abortion. You can only wait for your mildly heavy period to happen in next 4-5 days. There is nothing to worry. It is difficult to save this pregnancy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
