If you had unprotected intercourse during your fertile window, there's a chance that you could be pregnant.  Without knowing your cycle history and ovulation day, its difficult to provide good feedback.  There are many symptoms of pregnancy, but these same symptoms can also be used for a different diagnosis.  Therefore symptoms can be very misleading.  For example, the yeast infection could just be a yeast infection, and the dark brown discharge could be the layers of lining from your previous period just now making an exit as a result of the infection.  The best thing to do at this point is wait until AF doesn't show on the scheduled day, then take an HPT with first morning urine 1-2 days after.  Good luck!
