Is light brown spotting right before your period is due normal?

Is light brown spotting before your period starts normal?
my period is due any day now. it usually comes between 25-28 days every month. anyhow, last night i went pee and when i wiped there was some very light brown spotting on the tissue. i assumed my period was starting. this morning the same thing but no period (just light brown spotting). now i just went pee again and it is the same thing. i usually don't have spotting right before my period? being that my period is due around now could this just be "normal" and mean my period is getting ready to start? is it normal to have some light brown spotting before your period starts? i am not sexually active so i am not pregnant and not on the pill... (i am 34 yrs old) btw...
**  i asked this question here because i was not getting any responses in the 'women's health forum'.

thanks!

Im 15. Yes, young. I never had unprotected sex. But yes i have been having sex. Last month march was my last time having sex. I was supposed to recieve my period soon after but instead, got light brown discharge... not something i was looking forward to seeing. Now were in april, Im not supposed to be seeing my period yet. But i've been seeing the same light brown discharge for a week now.. maybe a little longer. This is strange, ive always had a regular period and now this.? Yes ive been a little stressed, yes i've lost weight but this? I really dont think im pregnant but any response from you guys would be helpful so PLEASE HELP ME!

Well the light brown discharge is actually blood. It's just old, and if you've ever seen dried or old blood, it will change to a rusty brown colour from red. There can be a lot of reasons why you get it. Normally it will precede a period or come at the tail end of a period. Sometimes it's implantation bleeding, and if you've been having unprotected sex you might be pregnant. If it's followed by certain symptoms, it can also be an indicator of STDs and infections. If you've been having unprotected sex, wait a few days and take a pregnancy test with first morning urine. If it comes up negative, make an appointment with your doctor and you can request blood work be done. You could also get checked out to make sure nothing is wrong.

you can get prego on your period the sperm can live for days inside you be careful and if your not planning for a pregnancy never let him finish inside you or just pull out the clear fluid that is secreted before ejaculation is potent aswell thats how i got pregnant with my first a man will tell you anything so he can feel good you need to protect yourself
