The brown stuff is known as 'spotting' it is just blood mixing with discharge, it turns brown when it comes in contact with air. This is just the start of your period, you can also get it at other times such as at the end of your period or around ovulation.

When will you get your period after brown stuff?

The brown stuff is spotting, small amounts of blood mixing with discharge, the blood turns brown when it's come in contact with air or as a result of the blood taking some time to leave the body. You can spot for a lot of reasons including ovulation (which will occur two weeks before menstruation), hormonal changes, or it can occur before your period - sometimes that spotting can be your period, if your period is very light. Without knowing your cycles better there is no way of knowing what this spotting is caused by to know how it could relate to menstruation, so just make sure you're prepared for when your period does start.
