Brief Answer:
Can be due to vaginal atrophy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild brownish spot at your age can be due to vaginal atrophy or vaginal dryness. If such spotting or any bleeding is recurrent then you need to get it examined from your gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
