... then restart on the first day of your period? (I was spotting and I thought it was my period.) I made sure I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, but I am late. I was wondering If me being late had anything to do with the pill, like maybe I'll get it on the last week of the pack
Yes, your period may have been late because of the pill.
It does not matter when you start taking your pills.
If you start on day - 1 ( the first day of your period) then you have immediate contraceptive cover.
If you start on any other day you need to wait seven days before you have full contraceptive cover.
