Bleeding whilst on the Pill after missing the white pills.

Patient : I have been taking the Pill for a few months now, and recently I missed 2 of the white pills. I took a pill on the third day resuming the pack, but I also have been bleeding for 3 weeks straight now since I missed those 2 pills. (I am still taking the pill, as I thought I might stop bleeding eventually if I keep taking them). So what should I do? Should I resume taking the pill and hopefully I will eventually stop bleeding or stop taking it and just resume at my next period?
