It's not advisable until after 12 months. You need to give your body time to heal.
Like Rachel said, we don't know if you're pregnant so you need to either take a test or see your doctor. From now on you should be using some sort of protection. Men don't have to "finish" in you for you to fall pregnant so the pull out method ISN'T a reliable way to prevent pregnancy.

You can get pregnant any time after you have a baby and you have unprotected sex.
My suggestion is to either get on birth control or use condoms. In my opinion, just using the pull out method is just asking for a pregnancy. I'm sure it works for some but I know way too many people that got pregnant using that method.
As for the brown discharge... I suppose it could be. The only real way to tell is to take a test. At least rule it out.
