Trying to conceive

Hello ladies, I'm new to this site and I would really like some help or experience!
Here’s a bit of a background about me. I fell pregnant in May 2014. I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy in February 2015. He's 8 months old today. I've had a pretty rough ride as it goes regarding periods and bleeding. My period returned to normal in the few months after I gave birth and I was having regular bleeds around 5-7 days long every 4 weeks. I then decided that with all the mayhem that comes with a new baby, it wasn’t wise for me to keep missing my pill and I opted for the implant. I had this fitted in April 2015 and bled for 2 months straight, heavily. It was awful. I finally got this taken out and went into the mini pill. I was taking this religiously for about 4 weeks when I then returned to work in August. Juggling work, house work and a baby return to mayhem and lone behold I’ve stopped religiously taking my pill. Me and my fiancé are not bothered if I was to fall pregnant again, we are financially stable and have enough space in our home for a new little bundle however, we aren’t actively trying.
Here comes the confusing part. I came on my period around 31st August (there about, I forgot to mark it in my diary so I just know its around those few days!). Me and my fiancé had unprotected sex on 12th September. I then started bleeding on 18th September. It was heavy, then the next day lighter, then the next day even lighter then on the 14th September it had stopped. I found it quite odd. On the 28th September I got light brown discharge, I assumed it was my period but had no cramping like I usually do. This carried on for 2 more days as a light brown discharge. I would wake up on a morning with a pad on but no discharge through the night, only a bit whilst I wiped. This morning I woke with no discharge on my pad and haven’t worn another today whilst I’m at work and I’ve just checked and I haven’t lost anymore.
I had previously bought in the sensitive pregnancy tests off eBay when I thought I might be pregnant a month or so after I got the implant taken out so I knew I had them in. I took one of the sensitive pregnancy test yesterday afternoon and it turned up negative. I am just so confused!!! To go from having quite regular periods after birth to having such confusing ones is driving me insane.
Has anyone had any similar experiences? Every time I google anything regarding brown discharge it brings up implantation bleeding however it’s putting doubt in my head that I’ve had a negative pregnancy test!!
Many thanks x
