Is this considered withdrawal bleeding?

I have a question on this situation:

I had protected sex (wherein the condom broke) on March 6 (infertile), took Nordette (4 pills, then 4 pills after 12 hours), and I had my period on the predicted date, March 12 for around 8 days. On the 21st, we had sex again, didn't realise the condom tore and I took Nordette again within 48 hrs. I started bleeding on the 28th (day 17 of my cycle) and it lasted up to 5 days (medium to light, not like my usual period which becomes really heavy on the 2nd day). What is this? Is this withdrawal bleeding or what? I'm not ready to get pregnant and hope these are just the effects of Nordette. :(

If it's an important factor, I have been eating chicken, beef, or pork due to my lenten sacrifice.
