You don't say how long you have been bleeding, nor how long you've been on Depo for.
It is very normal to bleed heavily and for a long time when you first go onto Depo. It can take around 3 shots over the 3 x 12 weeks (some give the jab slightly earlier or later), before you start to bleed less. Typically then, you will stop bleeding all together.
Everyone is different, so it may not take as long and may not be as heavy for some people.
If you want to try stopping the bleeding, you can go back to your GP and get something else. However, it may just be a case of ensuring you have enough iron in your body, so you don't become anaemic, and sitting it out (if you can).
As long as you don't end up anaemic, you've no need to worry. Just get your GP to check for anaemia.
