The brown discharge is just "old blood". All it means is that this was blood that was shed from the lining a couple of days previous and has taken a couple of days to move out of the body. This is completely normal.

Few women get discharge from chlamydia. The addition of menstrual fluid to the existing vaginal and cervical discharge will certainly change the appearance. If you're worried that you may have chlamydia, get tested.

Vaginal discharge starts as you enter puberty, typically menarche (first period) starts within four years of starting puberty. Watch for heavier discharge and pink or brown discharge which may be an indication of coming closer to your period.

Vaginal discharge starts as you enter puberty, there is no way of telling when your period will start by when you started to get discharge. The most that can be said is that menstruation normally starts within four years of starting puberty.

The female egg cell travels from the ovaries through the Fallopian tube and into the uterus. The egg is then released and that is the clear/white discharge you get before a period. Then the blood collects on the vaginal wall and is released which completes the menstrual cycle.
