See ur doc: Implanon is notorious for causing this. See your doc and it may give you some pills that possibly will solve your problem.

Pregnancy test: All contraceptive devices are not perfect, and will therefore not provide anyone with a full 100% guarantee protection from pregnancy. There are many reasons why you may be bleeding and difficult to go into details here. Please do a home pregnancy test because pregnancy (believe it or not) can cause bleeding. See the doctor who have placed the implanon.
