I am on Loryna birth control and have been on

Patient : I am on Loryna birth control and have been on it for about 5 months now. I was recently away and wasn't taking my pill at the same time each day for about 4 days straight, and ended up missing a pill and having to take 2 the next day. Ever since, I've been bleeding bright red blood and brown, but I'm not supposed to be on my period and it is not supposed to come for another week and a half. I've been bleeding now for about a week. I'm just trying to figure out if this is normal or if I should be concerned? The bleeding is not as heavy as my normal period, and usually comes out when I use the bathroom. At times its bright red and other times it's dark brown to almost black.
