It is difficult to understand exactly when you stopped and re-started your birth control pills.
A pregnancy test would help to ascertain if you are pregnant.
Taking your pills in the manner you describe is potentially harmful to you and your body.
Even on the pill you should use barrier protection as the lo-dose pills might not prevent ovulation in all women.
Please contact your doctor who might recommend a blood test to rule out pregnancy.
Please take your birth control pills as recommended and not just as you would like to take them.

You cannot mess with your pills like that and expect them to protect you. Start over like you've never taken any when you get your period, and keep taking them. You can't stop and start again nor can you skip days. I seriously doubt you had any protection from pregnancy doing what you were doing. I would get a pregnancy test done, you could be pregnant.
