Brownish black blood on first day of your period is normal. This means that it is blood that may have stayed for a while in the urine folds or blood that was there for a while waiting to be released.

Why do women sometimes have brown stuff in the crotch of their panties?

A brownish discharge is old blood. When blood is coming from the uterus during a period, it begins as pinkish (light bleeding), then redder or maroonish color (heavier bleeding with or without clumps called blood clots). Toward the end of a period, the flow becomes lighter and brownish colored. Brownish means "old blood", e.g. the blood has clotted from the source, like it is supposed to, so now the flow is just whatever blood was already created before. If you cut your finger and put a bandage on it, first you'd see reddish blood, but after the body creates a clot to stop fresh bleeding, you would see brownish blood forming with the scab on the wound. Same principle for what's happening in the uterus, except there is no scabbing when the body stops the active bleeding.
