Thanks for posting your query.
The mild brownish intermittent spotting that you are having can be due to coil or the infection caused by a tampoon. Both the possibilities are there. In case the spotting is associated with a foul smelling yellowish discharge then vaginal infection is more likely.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
