Bleeding even though I'm not on my period..?

Hi! Here's some background info that might be needed: I am on birth control, but I have missed a total of 3 days this month that haven't been taken yet (I am 3 days behind). Also, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago.

At the beginning of this week, I experienced bleeding that I assumed was an early period, even though I am on birth control. However, after I removed the tampon that I had used, there was no blood at all. So, naturally I was afraid that I was pregnant. There was no more blood for 3 days. Until yesterday, when it did the same thing, except for the bleeding was like a period for about 30 minutes. Then, no more blood. I am getting a little worried, especially because I am not to the sugar pills for another 4 or 5 days. I have also been feeling very nauseous. Anyone know what could be going on?
