Period troubles?

my last period was June 29th. I didnt get a period in July at all, but I did have some spotting. Sometimes recently when I wipe I get a little bit of red on the toilet paper..started around the time I was supposed to be getting my period in July. Could this have been my period? and is it normal? Also would I be able to start taking my birth control even though I didnt get my period yet?
