sometimes as gestational sac is embedding into the uterine wall it may create some cramp like pains, and also can present with spotting,
but if your pains becomes progressive and brownish discharge turns into bleeding better to consult gynecologist once to rule out the possibility of miscarriage,
if needed with her advice you can take progesterone as precautionary measure.
take care.
