Continue taking the pills in sequence. You will get to the placebos a day earlier than usual and will therefore have your period a day earlier.

i went and looked at the pack again. the white pills u drink when u have your period right?
well looking at the pack now. and i am in the light orange section. the first couple of pills on pack are light red. then the orange then the white last. now i took the red, and about 3 of orange looking.
i lost yesterday's pill and took today's one last night to make up for the same tablet....

White pills in my pack are active and the red ones are placebos, so they are not always the same - it depends on what you use. If you took one white pill today that was meant for tomorrow then you just take today's pill that you missed, tomorrow (if they are both the same colour). After that you carry on as per usual. I might be understanding you incorrectly.... is that what happened?

You don't have to worry as the white pills are only placebos. Continue your pills as per normal.

You can relax now :-)

I don't really know if my advice will be corretct, but I think you should see it as a skipped pill. Every section has a certain number of coloured pills that follows on each other. So I think if you be careful for 7 days, then there's nothing to worry about.

Good luck :-)

P.S. That's my advice, but I might be wrong. I'd still be careful for 7 days.
