Switching birth control pills

Hi. I recently switched from Portia to Kariva birth control. I am on my third week of Kariva. With my last Portia pack, my period was on time, normal (for me) and typical. However, I have had breakthrough bleeding for five days now. Not really heavy, but steady. I have also been cramping slightly. Is this normal?

Yes, I started my new pack when I finished my old one. I think my new one has less hormones and a different type? It's enough that I need a pad, but lighter than my normal period. Thanks!
