What causes delayed periods and brown vaginal discharge?

It seems you are an adolescent and are having first period. Congratulations then you are a fertile lady. You just relax and let nature for its job. The first periods are not regular and vary greatly from longer to short to heavy or light. You can take anti-inflammatory drugs such Advil or Ponstan to relieve pain.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
