Is brown spotting normal while pregnant?

I am 5 weeks pregnant. Earlier this week I had brown spotting. I called my OBGYN’s office and the lady I spoke with said it was normal and as long as it’s not pink or red I should be fine. That if it gets worse or anything to call them or go to ER. I haven’t had brown spotting since the day after that. It was only when I wiped. Anyways, fast forward to today and I am having diarrhea all day and my stomach hurts some. Not necessarily nauseous. Just an ache I think. Where I just feel ”blah”. My last pregnancy was 6 years ago and I don’t remember ANY of this happening then lol. I’m paranoid and I guess I’m wanting to know if it’s normal or not lol I don’t go for an ultrasound until February 1st. Oh I also found out Wednesday I have a UTI that I am taking an antibiotic for
