First, it's good to know that you've been taking some form of birth control, presumably hormonal.  However, it's still a good idea to have your partner wear a condom to prevent the transmission of STDs, even if he's "never been with anyone else" or he's a "virgin".  I hate to say it, but don't trust guys.  All we're interested in is having sex and we'll say/do anything.  Next, just because he didn't "you know" inside you doesn't mean that he can't get you pregnant.  Sperm are still left behind even before he "you know" inside.  

 

OK, now that we've got that out of the way, that weird brown discharge could represent a sexually transmitted disease.  Therefore, it's a good idea to go see your family physician or obstetrician and get evaluated for STDs.  Of course, since you're young and your periods/menses haven't been fully regulated, maybe your period is starting early this month.  As I've mentioned in other posts, the color & appearance of your menstrual cycle doesn't tell us much besides flow rate & duration.  Brighter red tends to be quicker flow while darker clotted blood is slower and means your body has had time for it to clot.

 

So go see your doc ASAP.  Good luck!  And next time (each time, really!), make sure he wears a condom, too.
