In brief: Breakthrough bleedin
This is called breakthrough bleeding.
It is a side effect of birth control. You should see your doctor and discuss the options. Some do well by changing brands. Others switch contraception methods. There are also some tricks your doctor can discuss with you with your current method that will sometimes fix it.
