Funny smelling black/brown discharge?

Hey everyone!
Last night I noticed a funny smelling black/brown discharge in my underwear, and I want to know if this is normal/nothing to worry about?
I just recently [2 weeks ago] got onto the Pill, and my period ended 3-4 days ago.
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend [we're both faithful and clear of STI's] 2-3 days ago.
The smell of the discharge is ... Well, indescribable. It just doesn't smell right.
Normally my discharge is white and has minimal scent, but now it's brown/black.
I'm just wondering if this is something to be worried about? Maybe The Pill is playing around with my hormones, or something more serious [I.E pregnancy?] or if it's just built up blood from my period?

Your perefctly fine:) the black/brown is just old blood being released. Its nothing to be alert about, very normal thing to happen.

I hope this helped:)

it's probably fine, but for it to be having a funky smell, i'd probably go get it checked out anyway.
