Missed bc pills, having a few pregnancy symptoms


Q: I missed 4 bc pills in a row. What I thought was my period came on time, but it was very light and lasted less than a day. I usually go for at least 4 days. I've been on the same bc for 3 years and never missed like this. I'm having cramping in my lower abdomen and into the very tops of my thighs. I feel achy and slightly nauseated throughout the day. I did a pt, but the results weren't at all helpful. I had a clear line and then where the positive line was supposed to be, that whole section of the little window turned pink. I'm doubtful about resuming my bc. Could I be pregnant and if so, wouldn't the pills be harmful?
