Am I pregnant? (On birth control)

Patient : I have been on birth control for one year and take them within a 30 minute window everyday. However, at the end of my second week of the pills this month I had brown discharge that lasted about 4 hours. I have never had this and think it might be a result of this vitex herbel stuff that is in my multivitamin.I had unprotected sex(besides the pill) a week prior to this brown discharge. I started my period but it came on monday instead of tuesday like always and was brown the entire time. I took a pregnancy test on the first day of the brown bleeding and it said negative. Could I be pregnant?
