2 1/2 year old machine. we descaled recently. when drawing the shot it has been dribbling over the filter for quite a while but sometimes it would work correctly, until this morning---it come out slightly colored light brown water (kind of like when i clean it and run the water through).

That Sounds like theres a blockage, most likely limescale has built up in the boiler. If you try descale now when water is only dribbling through, it probably wont work. Recommend strip down machine and unblock pipework and try get water flow to come back stronger, then try a descale cycle.
Do you live in an area that has hard water? Do you use filtered water? These might have some bearing on your problem.
There is "descaling", and then there is "descaling". Some people use a weak vinegar solution only once. Other people use several full pots in succession of straight white vinegar (full strength), followed by several full pots of water to flush the vinegar out. And some people use packaged "descaling" compounds that may or may not be effective.
Even after a heavy-duty descaling, there may (in the case of mineral deposits) be bits of "gunk" that were loosened by the descaling, and that settled into the drain holes over the filter basket. Think of a clogged shower head. Such clogs (which can be observed if you run the coffee maker without the basket) can sometimes be cleared with a needle or a toothpick.
Worst-case scenario? It may be that your Keurig is still under warranty.
