Although rare but conception still happens when taking contraceptive pill. Due to the timing of your symptoms, conception and implantation bleeding cannot be ruled out but the odd is quite low. Spotting in the middle of the cycle is much more common than getting pregnant when taking OC. You just have to wait until your period time and if you miss it you can do pregnancy test by then. Good luck.
