Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you are probably just having breakthrough bleeding and not to worry.  I always suggest a pregnancy test whenever there is unusual bleeding too.
In most cases the bleeding will subside on its own within a few days.  If not, call your doctor.
Good luck!
