Help! I'm 21 weeks and I have brown bleeding/ discharge and I dont know what to do!!!!!

March the 1st and 2nd, I was suppose to have my period, or decidual bleeding since I cant actually be having a period while pregnant. I am 21 weeks now... but now I'm two days late on it.
March 3rd, is for the first time, I had brown blood or discharge. and also a small clump about the size and look of a dried up prune. and it has no ordor to it at all And Im afarid that something bad may have happen.
March 4th for a half a day it was still brown blood or discharge until midmorning. Then there was bright red blood that didnt last but maybe a few mins or so. And then it's been this dried up red or burgandy color blood. It finally smells like menstral blood to me. and I'm still bleeding that today March the 5th
It's been a medium flow and steadily getting lighter. As today it's just a light flow.
I hope it isnt a sign of miscarriage.
I have been told it might just be my body's way of cleaning out the old blood left over from the last bleeding.

I'm not sure if it's normal, or if anyone else has had this experience but I will appreciate any help anyone can give me!!!

I would call my dr if I were you. Any bleeding this far along in pregnancy is cause for concern. I might even consider the ER. You shouldn't be having any bleeding at 21 wks. I hope this is  helpful.

I'm 19 weeks pregnant and the only time I had spotting was at 8 weeks and it was soo minimal that it only showed on the tp I didn't even stain the underwear.
You s hould not be bleeding at all.  Go to your doctor.
