Pill fell, I immediately took the blue pill for the next day but don't think I can get the pill that fell, it's gone... Should I continue with my pack as usual or discontinue and start a new pack?

The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, spotting, and PMS-like symptoms. Is there anything else I can help with?
