Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you were sexually active during your first pack of pills, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. The delayed period and altered bleeding could also indicate possibility of pregnancy. Wait and see if you start with your periods. If the symptoms persist, consider visiting your gynecologist/healthcare provider for blood HCG test and examination to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
