Withdrawl bleeds on birth control

Patient : I have been on the pill for around 2 years now but my last four withdrawal bleeds have been slightly lighter and shorter than normal. My last bleed had finished I had slight spotting for a few days afterwards which isn't normal for me . I am due to start on Sunday but am experiencing slight spotting now which again isn't normal for me as I usually start every Sunday. I did a pregnancy test around 2 week ago and it was negative. What's happening to my body?
