Spotting or implantation bleeding?

I started on Levlen BCP late June after being on Estelle for several years as I wanted to be able to skip periods seasonally. I went overseas early September and just got back this week and have been on the active pills the whole time to avoid an inconvenient period.

I had sex once a week and a half ago and about 5 days later began to experience small amounts of brown-pinkish blood which is still continuing now after almost a week. I think I did miss a pill around that time and took it straight away when I remembered however because of time differences my schedule might have been a bit messed up anyway. Despite all this I am finding it difficult to believe I am pregnant as he didn't finish inside me and I used to get into the same situation sometimes with my old boyfriend and I never wound up pregnant.

However in saying this, if it is spotting I don't understand why it would occur now. I never experienced it on my old pill or in any of the other months since I started on Levlen. I still have two and half weeks left of active pills and was wondering if I should just wait and see if this bleeding stops and if I get my normal period. I know I will probably have to see a doctor about this even though I don't like them due to being a very shy and private person.

If anyone has experienced something similar or has any advice to reassure me I would be very grateful as it is freaking me out about pregnancy being a possibility. Thanks in advance.
