A period is a sign that you are not pregnant; it is not a sign that your body is "preparing for a pregnancy". Menstrual bleeding is the act of the inner lining of the uterus sloughing off, including an egg (if it has not already been re-absorbed by the body).

Your second question: you had unprotected sex, but you are on the patch? Using hormonal contraception (like the patch) is considered "protected sex" from pregnancy. (It is not protection from sexually transmitted diseases, and you should also be using condoms to protect yourself from STDs).

Hormonal contraception, when used consistently and correctly every time, is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
