Period Started a week early

I am 39 years old and have been taking Necon 777 which is a brand of birth control for several years. I will try to make this as uncomplicated as possible. In August I started my period on 8/24 and started my new pack of pills on 8/29. I just realized that I accidentally only took 14 days of my pack thinking I had taken all 21 days as I don't take the sugar pills..I know this sounds crazy but it happened...Any ways, long story short I quit taking my pills on Saturday 9/11 and started my next cycle a week early on 9/14 as I usually start every 24 days and my next cycle should have actually started on 9/21. Therefore I started taking my next pack of birth control on Sunday 9/19. Is there any concerns as far as pregnancy? Should by next period start as normal or will this cause it to be off track?

I'm not an expert, however I think using back up for the first week back on the pills should be sufficient to prevent pregnancy.
