Brownish sperm could be infection or minute bleeding in the seminal vesicles caused by frequent ejaculation or strenuous sexual activity.
I would suggest doing a semen analysis to be certain what the brown particles are. Most of the time discoloration in the semen are self.limiting and has no clincial sequelae.
