Hi! I'm on my 2nd day of period and today

Patient : Hi! I'm on my 2nd day of period and today I took my very first birth control pill which is Althea.. It has 21 pills and 7 day free pills. When will I have my next period? My boyfriend's coming home on April 24th and I'd be on my 2nd pack of pills by then. Do we still need to use condoms if I'm on my first 7 pills on my 2nd pack? Or am I safe for unprotected sex. Thanks!
