If you're having un-explained spotting you should seek medical advice as there are so many reasons for this. To answer your question, spotting is common to for 2 or 3 days about a week before your period is due (implantation spotting - where an embryo is implanting itself in the uterus) just prior to your period and immediately after your period. It also sometimes occurs for the day of ovulation. It's usually a very light pink or brown colour and not very dark, but can vary from person to person. If your spotting appears mucosy, seems to be getting heavier or has clots in it, please seek IMMEDIATE medical advice.

When you start birth control it is not unlikely to have spotting or breakthrough bleeding. This is a side effect that can last up to 3 months or longer. You should not stop taking your birth control because you will actually mess up your cycle and when you will have your period. You will also experience more spotting or breakthrough bleeding if you stop now. The spotting will go away,however, you should visit your physician to consider changing the dosage of birth control. Spotting and breakthrough bleeding usually stops when switched to a higher dosage of birth control.
