Yes it is normal to have breakthrough bleeding while on the pill and taking predisone. Cortosteroids, anti-fungals, and antibiotics all affect the Birth Control's effectiveness. You should use a back-up method if on any of these for a minimum of two weeks after stopping the course of treatment and you are usually fine after a full cycle.

In terms of word choice, "breakthrough bleeding" is bleeding when you expect the hormones in birth control to stop bleeding.
