Took birth control pills wrong

i recently started using trinessa almost 3 weeks ago and i didnt know that i was suppose to wait to take the 7 white pills to end of the month because they are the non active pills and thats when my period is suppose to start.. but i took them the second week into taking the pills and i want to know if im at higher risk to get pregnant again... but im not sure if i can get pregnant around this time anyways because i had a miscarriage about 4 weeks ago. im very confused and i cant find an answer to my problem anywhere. i know it was common sense to take the only 7 white pills at the end but i wasnt sure and now im starting to stress about the situation. can you please help me?

Before you do anything else, you need to stop taking the pill and make sure you are not pregnant.
If you are not pregnant, you need to throw away the pack, start a new pack and use an alternate form of birth control or abstain from sex until the pill becomes effective again.
