In brief: Check your BP

check your bllood pressure, usually that shound may imply your BP is elevated.
if BP is normal then you may continue to take the meds. Make sure you keep yourself properly hydrated as dehydration may cause same symptoms.

In brief: Coincidence

I know of no connection between Sprintec or any other OCP and problems with your ear.
The continued thumping in your ear confirms the coincidental nature of the two. Better get back on your Sprintec ASAP before you feel a thumping in your abdomen caused by a growing fetus. I suggest you see a primary care doctor who can refer you to a specialist if he/she can't find out what's going on.

In brief: Open your ear

try breathing steam in through your mouth, out through your nose for 1 minute (retronasal steam technique) then blowing your nose and popping your ears; If that doesn't resolve your symptom, you should see your local ENT doctor for a thorough exam.
