Birth control start

I haven't taken the pill in over 5 months. I just got a new prescription, my period started the Sunday before last and I wasnt sure if I could take it yesterday (Yesterday was the sunday following the start of my period) it is now Monday: can I take a pill now and continue taking one each day, or should I just take two- Is it unsafe to double up on the start?
