In brief: Pill

Hard to tell check home pregnancy test.
If negative then wait to see if you get your regular period. If not having symptoms, pain, fever, urine pain, nausea, vomiting, etc then will be ok to observe and it it goes away. If in doubt see your doctor.

In brief: No

I don't know what pill you are on, as there are some ocps that may contribute to breakthrough bleeding in the cycle.
Normally, you are not supposed to have any spotting throughout your cycle, so i encourage you to get it checked. If nothing is found, you may need another contraceptive.
