Dark bloody discharge on Yasmin

I have posed several questions concerning the product Yasmin - as this is my first time using the product. I wanted to try to stop my periods for a bit, and thus far I was advised that I can do so but only for a maximum of 4 - 6 months on the product.

Today I saw a slight dark bloody discharge and then there was a bit of a bloodyish discharge within the vagina itself.I have not used any of the placebo pills during these last four months and have been taking the 21 packs one after the other and I am now on my fourth pack.

Should I stop taking the pill itself or is this a sign of pregnancy, as I have been active during this time as well. I have also been experiencing symptoms such as breast tenderness, water weeping from from breast, lower back pain and abdominal tightening, which I assumed were symptoms associated with product.

Please advise as this is slightly worrying!

More breakthough bleeding on Yasmin
I have some serious concern now, as I had some slight bleeding in my vagina itself, so I inserted a tampon, assuming that I was menstrating, but no heavy flow is occuring.

Should I stop using the pill now for a couple days, to allow my body to menstrate?

What would be the best course of action to take at this point?

A MILLION TIMES THANK YOU for reply on Yasmin
Thank you so much - I was seriously freaking out! So for about how long should I stop taking it - a week or so?

Yasmin pill - stop for menses
Just another quick question - should I stop taking the pill for a week or so and begin taking it again on the first day of my menstral flow?
