Vaginal Discharge During Early Pregnancy

Dear Midwife,
I am about 5 and a half weeks pregnant. This is my first pregnancy and we've been trying for over 3 years, so naturally, I'm nervous about every little thing.

Yesterday I noticed I was having an occasional brown discharge, that also had a little pink in it. Had none this morning, but started again this afternoon. I keep reading conflicting things about this being normal, and then about this being a warning sign of miscarriage.

I had no implantation bleeding (as in red blood), so could this be leftovers from implantation?
