I am sooo confused, so last month I started my birth control for the first time ever. I got my period and everything during the "sugar pill" week....and that was about 2 weeks ago....Last night when I went to the bathroom....I was very lightly spotting and I'm getting some cramps. I am still on birth control (obviously on week two) but should I go see a doctor?

Wierd bleeding is quite normal and to be expected for the first 3 or so month on hormonal birth control. That's a huge amount of hormones for your body to get used to, so having early or late withdrawal bleeds, or having spotting in between bleeds, isn't unusual at all.
