To be safe you need to take 7 consecutive active tablets before you have full contraceptive cover.
This is from https://www.drugs.com/pro/seasonale.html
"WHEN TO START Seasonale
Take the first “active” pink pill on the Sunday after your period starts, even if you are still bleeding. If your period begins on Sunday, start the first pink pill that same day.
Use another method of birth control (such as condom or spermicide) as a back-up method if you have sex anytime from the Sunday you start your first pink pill until the next Sunday (first 7 days)."
