Menstrual Cycle Irregularities during fast

  • I came off my period last Wednesday (a few days after Ramadan started) and then on Wednesday (a week after) I saw brown discharge in my underwear, this continued on Thursday and then today I saw the same however when I cleaned myself there was blood.

Question 1 – am I correct to assume that brown discharge within 15 days of period is okay and my roza will be accepted for Wednesday and Thursday?
Question 2 – as I have seen blood now, I understand my roza is broken? Am I allowed to eat or do I continue despite my fast counting?

Many thanks,
