Difficult to say: One of the side effects of Plan B is abnormal bleeding, so it is possible that the spotting is from the medication. Remember that Plan B only decreases your chances of unintended pregnancy by half. Just because you have some spotting does not mean you are not pregnant, so you might consider taking a home pregnancy test and see your physician as soon as possible.
