Troubles with the pill

Patient : I just started the Pill, and the doctor said to start on the day you get your period in the red section of the tablets. I started it on a Friday which is the last sugar tablet and then it continued into the other tablets. Firstly was that the right thing to do? But I have now had my period for 11 days and im in the middle of taking the non sugar tables. I take it every morning when I get up. I just want to know if I started it correctly or if my period will just gradually go away? get back to me asap please
Symptoms:  Long period while starting pill
