In brief: Breakthrough bleed

Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill.
Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. Your body does not recognize one brand form another unless the dose changed
