Brief Answer:
Take a home pregnancy test

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting us with your health question

Brown spotting is indicative of discharge of old blood. It can occur during premenstrual period and you might get your regular period soon.
If you are sexually active, then pregnancy needs to be ruled out. So please be advised to take a home pregnancy test as well.
Such period irregularity can occur normally. And if the issue is not persistent and since your hormonal profile is normal, there is nothing to be worried about.

Hope this answers your question

I'm not sexually active. Normally my period starts 11th but that's when I had just Brown blood and then the last day I had some clots.
