What does spotting before your period mean?

I began spotting 5 days before my expecting period.. it was like old, brown blood; it lasted for 2days and it was only when I would wipe... today I haven't had anything but I'm not supposed to start for another 2 days! My husband and I haven't really been trying to get pregnant but haven't been trying to prevent it either... just wondering if its possible to be pregnant? I have been cramping, and wanting to eat everything lol but I'm usually like that before so I'm not sure what to think?

Brown spotting is more often associated with old endometrial tissues. It means that during your last menses, the whole uterine lining failed to make a timely exit hence cleaning out the last deposits of it. Brown discharge could also be a symptom of a medical concern, which is more sinister than leftover endometrial tissues. It is therefore advisable that you visit a doctor for a medical checkup.
