Advice regarding finishing a pill pack early.

Patient: I am currently on the contraceptive pill and have run a couple of packs together. I have just started my third consecutive pack and am bleeding the entire time. Is it safe/advisable for me to come off of the current pack now, despite only being a week into it, in order to have a period seeing as my body appears to be trying to do that anyway?
