Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Brown discharge in early pregnancy can be due to miscarriage, subchorionic haemorrhage and ectopic pregnancy.
This can be confirmed by proper examination and ultrasound.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined and treated accordingly.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
