Still protected: First of all, you are on the pill so you were not unprotected. The pill is very good protection when used properly, though nothing is 100%. Bleeding commonly causes cramps, and this sort of "breakthrough bleeding" can occur randomly. It sounds like you have little to worry about but it is reasonable to be more careful the rest of this cycle.
