Irregular bleeding with bc pills


Q: Hi I'm 26 years old and have been taking bc pills for almost 3 years, last week I forgot to take the pill two times one was on Wednesday and the other on Friday so on thursday and Saturday I took two pills. Now I have been having kind of like a period since Sunday but I don't know if it is just that my period came earlier or is a irregular bleeding cause for the missing pills and I'm going to have my period on the regular days after, or if it is for something else. FWI my period should come at the end of next week and my boyfriend always use condoms for extra protection. Please tell me what should I do.
Thank you for your time.
