More or less: It's not uncommon when on OCP's to still have some menstrual irregularities. This is more common with lower dose pills and in the first three months after starting the pill. Mild cramping can also occur mid-cycle during ovulation. Please consult your healthcare professional to determine whether or not these symptoms represent lack of pill effectiveness .

Likely a good idea: Yes, it is likely a good idea, as you will only have a period every 3 months. The periods not not seem to be any worse than if you have it monthly.
