Brown spotting and light cramps a week before period is due.?

I'm on the pill (ortho tri cyclin lo) have been on this brand for about 5 months, and I'm usuallly pretty good at taking it, and I haven't missed any pills, though I was a bit late taking it a few times this week. 2 days ago I started having some dark brown spotting, and I've had cramps along with it. I just thought it was sorta strange. Is this a bad sign or anything, or is it just from the pills?

    Sounds like you need a lighter dosage...
