Probably normal: As long as this is a transient, as opposed to recurrent, occurrence (more than 5 cycles). This can especially become an issue with ocp (oral contraceptive pill) transitioning.

Menstrual changes, such as what you described in your post, are fairly common in women at any point in their reproductive years. If you missed any pills, or were late taking them, this could also be a possibility. Also consider taking a pregnancy test even though the odds of this are less than 1% if you take your pills as directed.
Other causes of abnormal periods are increased stress/anxiety, extreme weight fluctuations, hormonal imbalances (including thyroid disorders).
If the bleeding persists, or your cycles do not normalize over the next three packs of pills contact your doctor.

Probably nothing: This is not a period but what we call breakthrough bleeding. Your period on the pill should come predictably at the end of your pack. This can occur randomly, or if you are inconsistent taking your pills, or may be triggered by other medications like antibiotics. Effectiveness may be reduced so use backup contraception. ...Read more

OCP and period: It may be normal for you to have heavy bleeding on birth control pills. The amount of bleeding relates to how thick the uterine lining develops on the pill.

If you missed taking any of the pills, or took some medications that may alter the efficacy of the pills, that would also explain the bleeding. ...Read more

Wait and see: The first thing to do is to check a pregnancy test, to make sure you are not pregnant. If you haven't missed any pills, and this abnormal bleeding doesn't go away on it's own, or if you continue to bleed abnormally then you need to see your dr- some women develop breakthrough bleeding on their pills, and it may be due to excessive thinning of the uterine lining. Sometimes a different pil is needed. ...Read more
