In brief: Should stop

The half life of the pill is short so if you miss one day you can begin to bleed.
Always use back-up contraception if you miss pills. The next day you can take 2 pills to catch up and then 2 pills the second day. But this can be normal since you missed 3 days. Continue taking the pill and the bleeding should stop.
