Well, you shouldn't be having a period again. So, it could be from missing your pills but also implantation bleeding.

Implantation bleeding

what does implantation bleeding look like?
Implantation bleeding is vaginal discharge which usually contains a small amount of pinkish or brownish blood. Only about a third of pregnant women experience implantation bleeding.

When does implantation bleeding usually occur?
It can happen at the time the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, on average between 6 to 12 days past ovulation.
Should I worry about implantation bleeding occurring?
Unless accompanied by cramping, backache or increased bleeding, a small amount of blood being discharged should be considered as implantation bleeding which is nothing to be concerned about.
If this is implantation bleeding, when can I test to see if I am pregnant?
Home pregnancy tests are based on a very simple principle. They work by through the detection of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) in a woman's urine. This hormone is a hormone secreted by the developing placenta shortly after a fertilized egg has been implanted in the uterine lining.
If a woman is pregnant, the amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) in her system should be around 25 miu at 10 dpo (days past ovulation), 50 miu at 12 dpo, 100 miu at around two weeks dpo. Because of their high sensitivity factor ( 20 miu/ml hcg ) in detecting human hcg, both the aimstick pregnancy tests can confirm pregnancy as early as 6-8 days past ovulation. To help lower the chances of a false negative, the best time to test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation would be advisable.

Hun, I don't think the blood is from missing the pills, I think it's from taking three of them at once!! You're not supposed to do that! It says in the instructions, when you miss a pill, take it as soon as you remember, unless it's almost time for the next pill, in which case skip it. There is also a warning on bcp that says taking too many at once can cause bleeding (and if you take the whole pack at the same time you could hemorrage). You really shouldn't take more than one at a time from now on.

I really don't think it's implantation bleeding.
