    Things can be irregular when starting to take or changing pill. If you've just started taking it, this is probably a reaction to that - you won't get a 'withdrawal bleed' until your week-long break after taking it for three weeks.

    If you're worried, you can go back to wherever gave you the prescription, but you should find this bleeding stops in a few days.

    Yes, it's almost certainly a reaction to this new intake of hormones.
