I was on Birth Control for about 2 months, and got my period like I was supposed to on Oct. 23rd. I was also put on antibiotics on Oct. 19th. My period was normal, and after it had ended, I started my new monthly pack. and 6 days into it I started to bleed for about 3 days, it was light, but still there. I stopped my birth control after the 7th pill. Now I haven't gotten a period yet. I'm not sure if it's because I have went off the pill, or if it's because I could be pregnant. I'm also not sure if I should be counting from the period caused by my birth control pill, or the lighter one after that. I am married, and have had unprotected sex.. My pregnancy test was negative, but could that be because it's too soon?

You could have started to bleed because the antibiotics was cancelling out your pill creating a false bleed, but your doctor should have adviced you to use added pretection. If I was you I would use something else for the next few weeks/ month till I was certain I was back on track Then start the pill again. You could be pregnant but only time will tell. I have a illness which means my body could or could not absorbe the pill, its never failed me but that's a risk I've been adviced about.
