Spotting in middle of the month?

I started BC in January of this year, I was on the patch but switched to the pill at the beginning of June. I never had any problems switching over with spotting or feeling sick or anything. Then last month I forgot a pill one day, but took it the next and started my period a few days early, no biggie I expected something like that. But this month I haven't forgotten any pills and it's about 4-5 days before I start my placebos and I've started spotting already. Any thoughts?

You're still fairly new to this pill since you just started in June. It might just be a fluke and is probably nothing to worry about. However, should the spotting continue, let your prescriber know. Your body may require a different type of pill.
