In brief: Timing is everything

From your notes, it is hard to know exactly when you started your birth control pills; but you appear to have waited at least 8 days from the last day of your period to start your oc, when your body was preparing to ovulate.
Call your practitioner and be aware that you are not adequately protected at this point from getting pregnant.

In brief: Pill

The best time to start birth control pill is when you start your period or the first sunday after onset of period (sunday is just a traditional day).
However , you can start the day you start your period.
