I took an active pill on the 3rd day of

Patient: I took an active pill on the 3rd day of my cycle instead of inactive pill. Now, i have one extra inactive pill and I need one active pill to make up for the one that i took accidentally. Should i just continue taking as per usual and just throw the inactive pill?What if my period did not come on the expected date and I am suppose to start a new pack, shall I just take the inactive even I do not have my period yet or wait until it comes?
