Hello. So my period is a week late but today when I was walking out of school and I could fEel something coming out. I got home and chceked my underwear and it was blood but it was brown and looked sorta like mucus. I'm scared but I've never had sex befor but my boyfriend and I do fool around. I wear my underwear though when he pushes up against me though. He never ejaculated near me either but it might be possible for pre cum to seep thRough my underwear? I'm not sure.

Try to relax. Sperm in semen cannot penetrate fabric, so you cannot get pregnant if you are wearing clothing while fooling around. Some women will have brown spotting before and sometimes at the end of a period. I don't think you have anything to worry about. But a word of caution, when you do feel ready to become sexually active, please consider using birth control to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. Also, become educated about sexually transmitted diseases and protect yourself.
