Bleeding after first time sex duration and period


Q: I had sex for the first time on Saturday and it was a little rough and I bled moderately-lightly for about 2 days after then spotted for about 2 more. I am due to start my period today or tomorrow but haven't seen any sign of it so far. I usually have light periods due to my birth control pills. Is it normal to bleed so long after losing virginity? Can sex make your period come early if you are close to starting? Was the bleeding my period or from the sex? How long should I wait before worrying about not having my period?
