How do I know if it's my period?

I had my period last Jan5. It lasted the usual 6 days. The weekend my period ended(Jan13-16), I had a mix of protected and unprotected sex, but my boyfriend did not cum. By Tuesday, I took emergency birth control just in case. Then the next week, I got my period again. It only lasted for 3 days (1st day-normal flow, 2nd day-heavy and 3rd-light) my period usually lasts for 6days. And i got this period on day 19 of my cycle. Around 10-11 days early. Is this normal? Is it my period? When should I expect my next period to come?:

You are experiencing changes in your normal menstrual cycle as a result of taking an emergency contraceptive.

It may take another month or two before your period returns to normal. Your period can start earlier or come later. It can be lighter or heavier than normal.
