Spotting while on Birth control pills

Hi! I have a question please. I was a day to taking my last active pill when I noticed a pinkish-brownish discharge. Its like something I get when Im about to start my period. I have been using microgynon cd for about three years now and every now and then, I skip period by not taking the placebo and staring with the new pack. I also must admit that sometimes I forget to take the pills at the same time. But never beyond 24 hours.. My concern is ,this discharge I have now is first time to me. It has a little smell of blood. Today, I just started my placebo and I expect to have my bleeding in two days time, which happens always. I also would like to say that this month, I skipped my period. Is the discharge something I should be worried? Pregnancy possible? Thank you in advance

It's probably unlikely you are pregnant, however, taking a pregnancy test is the only way to know.
