Spotting Causes?

Hey all. For the first time in my life (I'm 22), I'm experiencing some spotting. It ranges from BRIGHT red to dark brown, like an extremely light period. It's probably gone on for 3-4 days now. Along with the spotting, I have been having occasional stomach issues. Nothing major, just like an occasional discomfort. Because I've never spotted before, I'm anxious to figure out why it's happening. I'm a bit of a worrier, so at the moment I'm getting myself worked up, convincing myself that I must be pregnant.

I'm on birth control and have been for close to 9 years now, no changes in that. I do fluctuate by an hour or two when I take my pill in the morning. I'm about a week and a half through the current cycle.
I just recently started a relationship with a guy, and we've had sex twice in the past week and a half. Once two Fridays ago, and again on, I think, this past Thursday. We used a condom both times, no breakage. Before him, the guy I was with had a fairly small penis, and the last year or so I haven't had much in the way of "action." My new guy has remarked on the fact that I'm really tight. The first time I had sex with him (2 Fridays ago) it was kind of rough and I think the condom and I didn't get along (Something in Trojan's Her Pleasure condoms tends to cause me pain). The second time, we used a different kind of condom and everything seemed fine. The spotting probably started about a day or two after the second encounter.

The things that I currently think could be causing this:
-Pregnancy (I know I shouldn't be worried about this, but I am anyways)
-A reaction to the condom used in the first encounter, a week and a half ago
-My body reacting to not being active in this manner for a while
-His penis being larger than I'm used to and doing some damage

I know I'm probably just overreacting, but I get really freaked out when I don't know what's going on with me. What do you think might be the most likely cause? If it keeps going much longer, should I see a doctor? Thank you in advance for your insights.
