    More problems with birth control...

    So ive been on the pill for about four weeks now. I had my one month appt last monday with my doctor and she asked me if id had any spot bleeding yet. I hadnt, but a couple days later (wednesday i believe) i started what i think is spot bleeding. It looks like the beginning of a regular period only not a heavy flow. And occassionally its actually like period blood. Its Saturday now and it hasnt stopped for more than a couple hours.
    My question is, how long does spot bleeding usually last?
    Is there anything i can do about it?
    And is it always going to happen while I'm on the pill or will it eventually not happen anymore?

    I know i have a lot of questions. Im sorry. Im just really curious and i want to know what is happening to my body when it does stuff like this..
