and took pill #1 of a new pack. But now I'm thinking it may be best to start the placebo row. Can I start taking the placebo, and then when that week is done - start back on that new pack by taking pill #2

You should not have started the new pack... however no harm is done.
Continue taking the new packet, you will not get your period.
Spotting or breakthrough bleeding may occur as your body responds to the changes in hormones but this is normal and you still will have full contraceptive cover.
See your doctor if you are not sure what to do.
All the best.
