So i guess im asking why she started already, and if we should worry about pregnancy.

This is very important..
birth control pills are not effective until the woman has completed one months worth after starting. So during the first month you are on the pill it is CRUCIAL that you use another form of contraception (like a condom). Starting the pill randomly will cause bleeding or spotting to happen and this is normal. after a month or two of taking the pill things will seem to be more normal. but because she started the pill at a random date , the day of her normal period will change. hope this helps.
