Bleeding: That could be a normal variation. If you swithched pills, if you forgot to take one or change the time that you use to take them, all that can affect your cycle. Pregnancy is always a possibility even thoug you are taking the pill.

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working.
