Hi Anonymous,
Any time you have sexual intercourse, you have the possibility of becoming pregnant even on birth control as nothing has a 100% guarantee. Now, every woman reacts differently to birth control methods so the light bleeding that you had could certainly be your period although as your body gets used to taking the pill, it will return to normal.

If you have any concern that you may be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. This would settle your nerves about any possibility. For more information, please review these articles: Answers for Women: Am I Pregnant After Unprotected Sex?.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Good Luck,
