I had a membrane sweep 3 days ago but my doc said my cervix wasn't soft enough and she didn't think it would work. Iam now passing some small amount of brownish mucus looking stuff and am wondering if the sweep did work and if labor is near?

You can lose your mucus plug weeks before birth. Generally a sweep will work in about 12-24 hours if it's going to.
Be patient, your baby will arrive when it's ready. Enjoy the time now and make the most of the "you" time. It will be many years before you get it again.
