There are many reasons for irregular periods, like anxiety, stress, thyroid dysfunction, increased prolactin level, sudden weight gain and most important pcos. You must exclude pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test and if negative the following baseline investigations should be done:
usg lower abdomen blood for cbc, tsh,prolactin and fsh. Based on your report, medications need to be prescribed.
You need to do a urine pregnancy test to find out. It should be done 10 days after missing your period. For example, if your date was 10th, then do the test on 20th. Before that, it can give a false negative or false positive test.
There is no fixed time in which one bleeds after taking ipill. Sometimes unexpected bleeding occurs more over it is not necessary. Next menstrual cycle can be early or delayed as side effects of the pill.

Hello, thanks for the query.
When one is on adequate dosage of levothyroxine, tsh is maintained around 3 to 4 mu/l, at which all the symptoms of hypothyroidism including weight gain are in check. So please check tsh level and then if needed increase the dosage of levothyroxine. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, was it your first sexual act? In such cases, there may be a little bleeding due to the rupture of a small membrane called 'hymen' which may cause bleeding for a while in small quantities.
Or was the intercourse too rash and painful (?), as in such cases there may have occurred some injury to your internal parts?
I would advise that if the bleeding is only minor and not causing much trouble, you may wait for it to cease on its own in a day or two.
If it's much of bleeding and/or you are facing some exhaustion or pain or fever or some other trouble along with it, get yourself examined by a nearby physician.
Hope I was able to help you a bit. In case if you have any more concern, you may write to me.
