Started birth control a day early, help me?


Q: I have been on birth control a long time but I am finishing my period normally today but I took my first pill on a new circle and thought yesterday was Sunday and didnt realized until I woke up today. I always start my new pack on a Sunday and finish my 21 day always on a Saturday. Do I keep continuing with my birth control and finish on a Friday or should I skip today and finish on the day I am suppose to finish? I am not having sex but I do not want to throw my body out of wrack and not sure what to do.
