Yes, this is normal. Dark blood is "dead blood" and red of course is fresh blood. When a woman is stressed out for any reason the muscles tighted and the lining that is coming out is brown (sometimes stringy) and the fresh blood is your normal period. Also starting Birth Control pills/patches can cause this. Nothing to worry about.

Brown spots on tampon?

If you remove a tampon and it has brown spots then it is likely old blood, normal when your period is light as it takes time for the blood to leave your body and it goes brown. If your period is light then you should not be using tampons at all, only use tampons with full flow. If the tampon has brown spots before insertion then throw it out and check other tampons before using them.
