In brief: Yes

It may be that you have a hyper coagulable state.
You need to stop the pill and be seen by a hematologist.

In brief: Absolutely

Any medications, including birth control pills, that contain hormones need to be discussed with your ob/gyn and hematologist.
Estrogen is contraindicated with this health history but you have plenty of other safe choices for effective birth control. Please notify your treating physicians immediately.
