Black blood means dead blood and red means fresh. Sometimes the blood will clot and become dark brown (almost black) and also appear clotty or stringy. It's wise to see your doctor for a pelvic examination.

5 weeks and spotting is brownish and now reddish?

It could be impantation spotting. If you had sex within a day of the spotting starting it could be from the cervix. However if it is changing to red you need to go to see a doctor asap, and make sure your not having a miscarriage. When I was first pregnant with my baby I had spotting without sex and it was from implantation but it was brown blood which is old blood. Red blood is fresh blood!! Good luck.
