In brief: Continue

Continue taking your pills; you won't be sure, if what you are experiencing is just "breakthrough bleeding" and you will still come on your regular menses.
You want to be sure to stay in sync when you start your new pack. If you ever stop taking bcp anywhere in the pack, while on the hormone pills, you will have a withdrawal bleeding. If the breakthrough bleeding continues, you may need to switch.
