Help? Could I be pregnant?!

Patient : I have been on Tri-Sprintec birth control for about a year and a half, two years in June. A few weeks ago, I missed a pill but took it the next day before it would be considered late (before 24 hours of when I was supposed to take it). Yesterday, I noticed bright red streaks of blood in my discharge and this morning, my discharge was light brown. My period is due on Friday of next week. Could I be pregnant?
Symptoms:  None, just the slight light brown discharge as of this morning
