Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community and welcome!

It has been a few weeks since you have had unprotected sex, brownish spotting and pink spotting-what has been going on since then? Have you been having any early pregnancy symptoms like nausea or fatigue? Has the pink spotting stopped? Please let me know more details. 

Brown discharge is a sign of implantation, but implantation typically takes 7-10 days and your brown discharge was the next day-so it's highly unlikely that you had implantation bleeding. And pink discharge is also considered normal and the explanation could be as simple as some of the left over blood from your last period meshing with your vaginal discharge.

Nobody can tell you over the Internet if you are pregnant or not, all we can do is give you some ideas, based on the information you have given us. 

A pregnancy test can be taken 10-14 days after unprotected sex and when taken correctly, will certainly be accurate by the time your period is due. 
I hope this information helps you! If you have further concerns, taking a pregnancy test is a good idea if the time is right, or call your doctor for further instructions. He or she may want to give you a physical examination or a pregnancy test at the office. 
I hope this information helps you and you get answers as soon as possible.
