Yaz, and Candida

I need some advice please...

I had my period two weeks ago.
On Friday DH and I went to dr, both of us was given antibiotics, and when we go home, we made love, and did not use any protection. Started the antibiotics that day....
On sunday morning I realized that I had missed my Friday and Saturday night Yaz tablets, so quickly drank one that morning...
On monday morning I started itching, so figured I had candida, I used Canistan V cream, which eased the itch, and have been using it twice a day since.

Now the freaky thing is that yesterday morning when going to the bathroom, I realized I was bleeding. At that time it was a fair amount, the rest of the day a little, and I am still sort of spotting.

Could this be because I missed my tablets?
My next thought was implantation bleeding, but never had that before, and have 2 kids already - ironically both concieved in August.....

PLEASE advice.....

Thank you so much!!!

The bleeding/spotting is due to the tablets that you have missed.
