How long does implantation bleeding last

It has been 14 days since the start of my last period. The last few days I've had a darker, brownish-discharge that only shows up when I wipe - nothing requiring a pad. I don't know if I'm getting another period (which would be abnormally soon after the last one) or if this is implantation bleeding? I don't know if implantation bleeding is one day and then it is gone, or if it could be several days like I've been experiencing. Anyone know? Thanks! (and if it IS another period - if I should go to the Dr. - or wait it out to see if wierdness happens next month too. I'm normally fairly regular - sometimes shorter cycles - but not 14 days - sheesh). Thanks!

Take into consideration that my answer was definitly an ignorant one.  =)  This will be my first baby.  I have heard soo many people with this fear right after having a baby.  

Your boobs are most likely sore from your milk drying up if you are not breast feeding.  My SIL had the WORST boob pains during that time!
