What is this brown discharge with missing periods ?

Hi I have been having brown discharge for 4 days now the first 3 days it was kinda light and when I woke up this morning it is a lot more of a darker brown. I should have started my period about a week ago give or take a day or two after reading up on it I called my doctor who said I should take a home pregnancy test, I have went through all the signs of me starting my period but no period could I be having a miscarriage?

Your doctors advice was correct.First you need to take a pregnancy test and only then can you say anything about miscarriage.If its negative then this is your normal period.If you do do test positive,get an ultrasound and see your doctor immediately.
