Hi Anon!

Generally we don't give advice when it comes to how to take medication but per the usual instructions of a 28 day pack, you should also take your day 16 pill today and use condoms as a back up for the next 7 days, while taking one pill per day as usual.

You should call your pharmacist to confirm this as many pill brands are different.
