Those photos are so fuzzy that I can't make out many useful details. You'll need to give us a description of things like gill attachment and whether there is a ring on the stem. Also, make sure you tell us about things that wouldn't be in a photo - like if parts of the mushroom are sticky or slimy, and what the mushromo smells like.

Happy mushrooming!

Rusty brown spore prints should be considered a warning. Without more detail it's impossible to be sure, but Galerina is a possibility, and some Galerinas are deadly poison. There is actually an active Galerina species (the only record of it I am aware of is in Europe, and in a greenhouse at that), but accurate identification of Galerinas requires a microscope. If a mushroom is possibly a Galerina, you should not eat it.

A white spored mushroom with that overall appearance that isn't at all slimy is likely to be a Russula. Try breaking the stem in half. It is fibrous, or does it break like a stick of chalk? In the US, many Russulas are edible, a few are poisonous, none of them are active.

Happy mushrooming!
