In brief: Likely yes

Some people can have irregular bleeding on birth control pills, called break through bleeding.
This is more likely when you first start the pill or if you've missed pills or took them late. Keep taking your pills same time each day and the break through bleeding usually clears up. If it doesn't call your doctor. If you've missed pills check a pregnancy test.

If you are sexually active check a pregnancy test and if not pregnant this could be due to the tri version of pills you are taking.
