Has postinor messed up my cycle? Or is this something else?

I'd like to ask for some advice, I'm a bit stressed..
I have a pretty regular cycle (28 days), and I was meant to have my July period on the 4th.
However, I had unprotected sex on the 1st of July, he didn't pull out on time, and I took a morning after pill about 3hrs later.
It delayed my cycle and I only started bleeding on the 7th-11th. It was as normal period.
On the 21st I got pinkish discharge and I know it could likely be ovulation spotting but I'm terrified at the thought that it could be implantation spotting.

What should I do?

Please help!

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Emergency contraception can disrupt your period. It also causes bleeding a few days after. The bleeding you experienced could have been the side effect of the drug instead of your actual period.
As long as you took it correctly, you do not have to worry about pregnancy.
