How are you doing ?
I Pill is high dose of Progestrone hormone which is produced in your body in second half of period after ovulation. This pill will suddenly increase the thickness of inner lining of uterus , making it unfavorable for a possible pregnancy to sit. As it is single dose, it has not strength to stand on, so it falls off & you get period or bleeding of the increased thickness within 7-10 days.
So this bleeding you are having is the expected withdrawal bleeding. Don't worry, there is no chance of pregnancy.
Hope I have clarified your queries, do write back if any more queries
All the best
