Just started bc and got period week 3?

I have been off birth control for a few years now and recently decided to go back on. My dr gave me aviane (I think) and I know you are supposed to start it right after your period but I started it a little late. I got my period during the 3rd week of pills (?????) and now I am nearing the end of week 4 when I should have gotten my period and I stopped bleeding after the end of week 3. I am really confused... Is this ok or not normal? And I know it takes a month before the pill is effective... Is it effective now or should I still use other bc measures because I didnt get my period when I was supposed to?
