First-Time Spotting?

I've never experienced spotting before during my cycle. I'm on my fourth month of BC pills, and I took the first pill of the third week last night. I felt something kind of like cramps earlier, and when I went to wipe, there was blood. What causes spotting like that?

I'm always fairly consistent with the time I take my BC - between 9 and 9:05 pm I'd say 9 days out of every 10, and the days I take it late it's never more than like an hour late. I spent most of this past weekend really wigging out stress-wise, but that seems to be curbed now. 

I've never spotted before, so this kind of worries me. I haven't had sex with my boyfriend in the past few days - when we do, we use a condom as well as BC. Of course, being my hypochondriac myself, I googled "reasons for spotting" and the first couple of explanations were things like diseases and miscarriage ... so I hope to God it's not any of that. 

Any help would be much, much appreciated. I'm on Microgestin fe 1/20.
