I've been on the birth control implant Nexplanon since July

Patient : I've been on the birth control implant Nexplanon since July 28, 2015. My last period started July 24, 2015 and ended July 29, 2015. I started bleeding August 14, 2015 after the insertion and haven't stopped since. The bleeding has been light until this morning (November 17, 2015), I woke up and saw that I bleed through my underwear and pad that I had on. Vaginal blood clots that are bigger than a quarter are coming down every few minutes. Should I be worried, should I visit a hospital or a clinic? FYI I can't see my doctor at my clinic until after 3:30 because she refuses to see me until then.
