Brief Answer:
Take it, complete the course

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

You should complete all the tablets in the dose of UNWANTED KIT.
Misoprostol has prostaglandins which helps in expulsion of the contents of the uterus as a result of conception. All the tablets have to be taken for the process to complete.
The bleeding had already started but let the entire content be removed.
So complete all the tablets including the rest two tablets that are left.

All the best.
