Hi Anonymous,
It is likely this discharge could be just "old blood," which can appear dark or rusty in color. Have you experienced this for many months? It could just be a normal part of your period. However, if it concerns you, call your doctor to find out what they suggest. They should be your first contact for reproductive health since they are intimately familiar with your own personal health history.
Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
