Took 3 active BC pills at once

I've been on Ortho Evra for the past 2.5 years and had intercourse on Saturday. I realized I missed my dose on Saturday AND Sunday and took the back pills along with my dose for monday (3 pills at once) immediately before reading the instructions. This past sunday started my last week of active pills, and I typically get my period on day 2-3 of the fresh pack (not during (sugar pill week). I’m unsure of my ovulation schedule because of this.

A. Am I at risk of pregnancy?

B. Should I start a new active pack when I’m finished with my last active pills in my current pack (skipping the sugar pills?)
C. Should I obtain emergency contraceptive?
