Brown discharge, getting heavy during early pregnancy. Should I be worried?

i am at 5 weeks pregnant. I am 30 years old. I woke up today and started with some light pink/brown discharge , that has now turned red and semi heavy. I havent had any cramping. this is my first pregnancy so I dont know what I should do whether I should go to the emergency room or wait for the doctor tomorrow. Should I be worried or is this normal?

Hello, no brown discharge in pregnancy is not normal, you need to consult your doctor immediately and get a sonography done as this can be an early sign of abortion. So meet your doctor immediately and get investigated. for now would advice you complete bed rest and no lifting any heavy weights or any other heavy work to be avoided,Take care.
