In brief: 6 days

Six days of menstrual bleeding is not that unusual.
This is your first month of the pill. Typically we recommend tracking the cycles for a few months to see how it goes. After 3-4 months if you are not satisfied with the level of menstrual cycle control you may want to consider other options.
