Ovulation, The Break Week and The Pill

This was just a general question, but I'm currently on the combined pill Rigevidon for roughly two months now and this is first time I'm relying on this method of contraception without a condom, however, I'm now in the middle of my break week which has just kick started my flow (Now on day two of flow). Whilst this is my first time of being able to trust the pill, I've been taking ovulation tests to calm my nerves as to seeing nothing will happen, and being the second day of the bleed I took it, and it came back a lot stronger than the previous days which has made me extremely nervous. Whilst it was not a full positive, in comparison it was a little darker than the other tests previously. I've taken all of my pills correctly, no antibiotics or anything so I realise that the chance is extremely slim, but I feel as though I do need reassurance. Could I be ovulating on the pill? Could the test be a false positive because of the break week? Any advice would be great!

Many Thanks,
