I just started taking my BC pills and I found out that I'll be gone in May for a month. I'm not sure if I should take my BC pills with me bc I'm scared my parents will find it. What is the best thing for me to do?

It's best, if you can, to not discontinue your birth control pills, especially if you've just started them. By starting and stopping your pills, you're just setting yourself up for a bunch of cycle wonkiness, plus, you couldn't really rely on them as being effective in pregnancy protection for a good couple months by taking them in this way.
Do you have a purse or personal toiletry bag that you'll be taking with you? Could you slip them in there (maybe alongside some tampons in a box or a few pads) and then just take your pill when you're using the restroom in the morning or at night? That way you'd have them stored in a discreet place and could take them at a time you know you wouldn't barged in on.
