... midnight, which is technically the 8th. I took the pill around 11 am. I started this dark brown discharge today which is the 14th of January. It is not heavy at all. And does not look like my normal period. I am over 170 and my height is 5'0 is there a chance I could be pregnant???
The above answer to your question is factually incorrect.
Plan B is not advised for those women with a BMI higher than 26. This would mean that it may not work for you.
In addition to that, Plan B can be effective up to 72 hours after unprotected sex, not just 48 hours.
If you are over a BMI of 26 then you should opt for the other emergency contraceptive pill, Ulipristal Acetate, which covers heavier women.
Ulipristal Acetate is also the pill to use if you are fertile (around your ovulation time). If you are at your fertile time of the month, then Plan B is unlikely to work for you. It works by delaying ovulation, & if you're already approaching it/ovulating, then it may not be able to do so.
You have 5 days/120 hours to take Ulipristal Acetate, after the unprotected sex, rather than the 72 hours to take Plan B/Levonorgestrel.
The other method of emergency contraception for you would have been to have an IUD fitted within 5 days/120 hours by a doctor.
The brown spotting may be from the huge dose of artificial hormone in Plan B, but could also be implantation bleeding, from pregnancy.
The only way to know if you're pregnant, is to do a test if you miss the start of your period (which can also be a side effect of Plan B).
What date did your last period start? I can give you an idea if you were likely to be fertile.
