... skip the brown ones since my period already came? Or can I just skip the brown pills all the time?
The purpose of the sugar pills is to keep you taking a pill every day, so you don't forget to restart. When I was on the pill (in the dark ages) we didn't even have the sugar pills. Do not alter how you take your pills no matter when or if you have your period. You can skip them, but wait a week to start your next pack. You can go from one pack to the other without waiting that 7 days, a few times a year, but not all the time. When you start the pill, your period will do some strange things because its getting used to the hormones.
