You could be having vaginal infection which can be seen in those on pills. Also possible is because of hormonal changes by the pills. If you have any discharge from vagina, any burning sensation on passing urine or lower abdominal pain you can consult Doctor. Also get evaluated for the cause of the spotting. Get tested for STDs. Use condom to prevent STDs. Drink plenty of water.
