Brief Answer:
Get your ultrasound done today.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
In early pregnancy spotting and brown discharge is very common and if not associated with any other symptoms like pain in abdomen, vomiting and foul smell,there is no need to worry.
It could be due to hormonal changes also.
As your ultrasound is due on 20 th may in my opinion it is better to go for it right away.
Maybe you require progesterone or hcg supplementation.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
Regards
