This is Dr. David

it can be normal to have some blood in the semen.

this is called hematospermia and often comes from blood from small broken blood vessels in the testicles where sperm is created and this can stain the semen to be brownish color

most of the time, this is not a problem

sometimes it can be a sign of infection in the prostate gland or testicles.

you can see a doctor and get your prostate and testicles and scrotum checked with ultrasound

but usually this brown color in semen usually goes away on its own

let me know if you have questions.
