I would advise you take a pregnancy test now: that doesn't sound like a period. It sounds like spotting, which sometimes can be due to pregnancy.
Too, if you're having unprotected sex you also have STI risks you need to deal with, and that's also a concern per the spotting: you'll want to schedule an STI screening soon.
And as should be obvious, if you do NOT wish to become pregnant or get an STI, you'll want to change your bahits per unprotected sex pronto.
