Brief Answer:
serum beta hCG blood test after a week to confirm

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Bleeding pattern varies like this after ipill.

Light bleeding is not a reason to worry.

However do serum beta hCG blood test after a week to confirm this is periods bleeding and not implantation bleeding of pregnancy.
