Thanks for your query.
This bleeding may be a sign of your impending period.
It may be because of emergency contraceptive pills which cause cramps and bleeding.It may be brown in color.
You should consult a gynecologist for urine,blood test and ultrasonography to rule out pregnancy. In your case chances of pregnancy are very rare because you have already taken pills.
Take care.
