On birth control pills. Started light brown discharge, no cramps. What does this mean?

Hi, I have been on birth control pills for about 8 years now, and I have been on a new pill since last summer. Well the past few days I have noticed a light brown discharge when I wipe. Im not having any cramping or anything, i m just wondering what it could be. I shouldnt start my period for about 10 more days. I have never had this happen before.

It maybe a "break-through bleeding", i.e. bleeding suddenly after long exposure to extraneous hormones. You must have an ultrasound examination to rule out any other pathology.
