In brief: Depends
Breakthrough bleeding is very common on birth control pills and generally lasts only one cycle.
Other causes of irregular bleeding on the pill include infection, pregnancy, polyps, etc.

You might also need to adjust the hormones or their concentrations with a different pill or not...don't be in a rush tochange pills, the bleeding could resolve.. oh and cosider a pregnancy test.
