Risks of Pregnancy if I get my period a week

Patient : Hello. I am on the Orsythia birth control pill. I received my period a week before I normally do (during the 3rd week of the active pills instead of the fourth week of the inactive pills). I am wondering if I am at risk for getting pregnant during the fourth week of the inactive pills because I've already had my period. Please let me know. Thank you!
Symptoms:  Bleeding/having my period during the 3rd week of my pack instead of the 4th week
