Taking birth control wrong and discharge

Patient : I have been on birth control for like i don't know a month now, but i feel as if i'm taking them wrong. I am taking sprintec, i read online you can take them any time as long as you take them the right day but my mother told me thats not true and i'm taking them wrong. i had ran out of pills thursday and skipped friday and saturday because i thought you were suppose to always start on a sunday with a new pack. i am having brown discharge a lot and i'm not sexually active. What is wrong? Whats happening? what do i need to know and do?
