Thanks for your query.
What you might be experiencing could be breakthrough bleeding or withdrawal bleeding.
This is common with birth control pills, especially with erratic use, as has happened.
To rule out pregnancy, which I think is a remote possibility, take a home urine pregnancy test and do get back.
Take care, and feel free to ask further questions.

Continue taking the pills as advised.
Do not break any pack of pill use.
If the abnormal bleeding continues for a week or more, please consult a Gynecologist.
