Do you still have the white discharge?

OK. There was enough time since your last period that if you were pregnant the test would have been positive if you took it today or yesterday but you can repeat it in a week if you don't get your regular period just to make sure. Sounds as though you have a yeast infection and that can cause this kind of brown discharge even if a period is starting. You can try Lotrimin vaginal cream for now and see if that stops the white discharge but I don't see how you could be pregnant
