Brief Answer:
Can be due to dryness.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The brown discharge after urostomy usually stops in 7-10 days. Since you are taking the antibiotics the infection should have been controlled by now.
The persistent bleeding can be due to aspirin use fragile mucosa or vaginal dryness due to low levels of estrogen. Do consult your gynecologist for an examination and a few tests in case it has been more than 10 days.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
