Trying to conceive

I started my first pack of the combined pill (Cilest) mid-way (day 11) through my cycle, because I wanted to delay conception. I know it's recommended to start on the first day of your cycle, but I didn't think there would be an issue as I knew for sure I wasn't pregnant at the time. I then read that you should use extra protection for the first 7 days as the pill doesn't take effect until 7 days later. But we didn't use any extra protection.
I then had my withdrawal bleed which last about 5 days, and I decided not to carry on taking the pill as me and my partner were ttc. Me and my partner had unprotected sex on the 10 August (8 days ago) but I didn't really show any signs of ovluation.
I have always had a 28 day cycle and today my real period started 4 day early, but it is not like a normal period, the blood in dark brown in colour, quite light and doesn't seem to be getting any lighter. I am not sure whether the pill has affected my cycle, as I was only on the pill for one month and I wanted to know if this is normal and how long should I wait to take a pregnancy test?
