Birth control pill help

Patient : I just started getting on this birth control pill called YAZ and I took it on the first day of my period and usually my period lasts about 4-5 days and now its my 7th day and i feel like its lighter but its still going on. Is this normal? Also, I would like to know If i'm on this birth control, been on it for 5 days and if i have intercourse during my period the pill will still be effective and i won't get pregnant if the guy ejaculates inside right? I'm just worried :/ Thank you!
