In brief: Not always cysts
Depends on whether you are on birth control or not.
It is common to have "breakthrough bleeding" on some birth control pills. Simply taking a "stronger" pill often is all one needs. Cysts are common and most people don't have cyclic regular spotting despite having cysts. Without doing an ultrasound i would not assume that cysts are present or are anything more than an incidental finding.
