Lasting lower back soreness

Hi guys, i've been recently having some problems with my lower back, A couple of months ago I started doing a strength program, it goes like this:

Mon: Back Squat/Pullups/Press (3x5)
Tu: Power Cleans 5x3
Wed: Rest
Thu: Back Squat/Bench Press
Fri: Deadlift 1x5

I started preety low all around, but maybe went too high with the deadlifts (squatted 145, deadlift 205)

Anyways after deadlifting I found that my lower back ached the rest of the weekend, I have been polishing my form and now I am preety confident with it.

Now I'm at 205squats and 215 deadlifts, I feel that I'm at the right spot with the weights but my back is still sore. I am sure I keep neutral lumbar curve throughout the sets but I still feel sore afterwards.. is this normal? What measures should I take to avoid this kind of issue, (assistance exercises, after wod stretch, etc) Should I use a belt?

I weight 140lbs and this is the first time I have done this kind of program.

This may help.... what do you THINK it is based on this wfs

Google marked pic would help too

Have any orthopedic issues with flat feet, one leg longer than other, etc?

Re: Lasting lower back soreness

I don't have any orthopedic issues, at least nothing has showed up or has bothered me in the past with this issue, I will follow Camille's advice and get some videos of my form this week, during the weekend the pain has subsided I am going to be really careful this week to try and pinpoint exactly where it starts.

Thanks for the replies so far guys I hope this can be sorted out soon enough

Edit, the pain is usually on either side of the column in the iliac area, not the Hypocondriac region, where the column is, and it is not noticeable when sitting or aplying pressure only when I do something, and since it subsides after a few days i'm guessing it is muscular.. but I want to make sure my form is good before anything else.
