spotting for over a week, started 2 weeks after a short period

I got my period on Oct. 12, on time, but it only lasted a bout a day and a half.  Then, 2 weeks later i started noticing a brownish, reddish discharge when i used the restroom.  I have to wear a pad during the day but it is only very light discharge if any throughout the day and night.  I took a pregnancy test on Oct. 10 because I thought i might have been pregnant, it was negative.  I do not know what is going on.  I am 26 and have always had very regular periods, even after having my kids.  I have never had any kid of spotting or anything like this.  Does anyone know what might be causing this?  I am on the pill and have been for about a year. I missed a couple of day in late Sept or early October, but have taken them regularly since then.  Please if you have any ideas what could be causing this let me know. Thanks
