Thanks for the query.
Brown colored blood usually indicates collected blood.
Turning into red color may indicate fresh blood.
So better to consult gynecologist as early as possible.
Get examined and undergo ultrasound to find out the status of the fetus and placenta.
Then with your doctor's advice, you can follow measures like :
-Bed rest
-Progesterone supplementation to stop the bleeding.
-Analgesia to decrease pain.
-Hematologic investigations the estimate the hemoglobin levels, to rule out Rh negative pregnancy etc.
For more details :
With this workup, the bleeding can be possibility controlled.
Take care.
