Brief Answer:
Right pattern

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Firstly I would like to suggest you that it is not safe to take the MTP pill yourself without consulting a gynecologist.
At most places it is not an over the counter drug and is available only on prescription but if you already have prescription and procured the kit then it has a specific pattern of intake
Kit consists of one large tablet mifepristone to be taken at once and then after 48 hours of that take the rest of the tablets In kit which are four in number or as told to you take 2 tablets after 24 hours and other two after 24 hours again.
After taking full kit, abortion occurs anytime between 6 hours to 5 days.
But in few patients there can be an incomplete abortion or excessive bleeding per vaginum and in that case you have to visit a gynecologist.
I hope I have answered your question but in case you have other questions I will be happy to help.

Brief Answer:
Wait for at least 24-48 hours

Detailed Answer:
As I told you complete abortion takes at least 6 hours to 5 days and takes around 24-48 hours after last dose of misoprostol.
So just relax and wait for completion of the process.
Take care.
