Unfortunately there are some weird side affects of birth control.  "Spotting" is one of them.  "Spotting"  is the brown discharge.  Unless it has a very bad strong odor of becomes very heavy, I wouldn't worry about it.  Some things you can do to minimize the spotting are, Take the pill the same time every day and try hard not to miss a day.  This is pretty normal for woman just starting the pill or for those who haven't taken it in a while and start again.  It has to do with the hormone changes.  I'm not a doctor but I have been in your situation and seen my gynocologist and that is what she told me.  Also if it continues talk to your gyno about trying a lower dose pill of a different birth control method such as Depo shot or IUD.
