should i wait to start the day 1 pill the Sunday after my period flows or should I st

I need your advice. My doctor is away on vacation so I've had to rely on pharmacists and friends for answers. Sadly, their answers are contradictory and I'm more confused than before. Hopefully someone here can enlighten me.

I've taken birth control pills before and always began as a Sunday starter. However, this time around, I'm not certain when I should start. My period always occurs regularly and should happen next week. One problem: I've started spotting since Wednesday, though very lightly and at times, like yesterday, hardly at all. Knowing this, should I consider spotting as the beginning of my period and start my b/c pills tomorrow? Or should I wait for my period to flow before starting the pills? I'm confused. All suggestions welcomed. Thank you.
