Brief Answer:
Can be due to vaginal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild brown spotting that you had can be due to a vaginal infection. This can be due to mild hormonal imbalance also. In case this has happened for the first time then there is no need to worry. In case such episodes are recurrent then it is best to consult your gynecologist for a physical examination and proper treatment of the problem.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
