Take the placebo pills for 5-7 days, and start a new pack of low dose bcp's. The bcp packs contain a number of "active pills" to represent the intervals common with menstruation, but missing two pills at the end of a pack will not affect the contraception action if one starts the new pack seven days after the last active pill taken.
