May be normal.: The birth control pill is very effective, if utilized correctly. If you take it everyday at the same time and you're not on any of the medications that can interfere with it's efficacy, then the pill is usually over 95% effective. Break through bleeding is common if you are late on a pill. Probably normal, but still could be pregnant.
