Changing pill brands?

I'm currently on Loestrin, the kind with 4 iron pill days, and the rest are active pills. When I went to PPH, they gave me some more pills, and I just noticed (I have to start a new pack soon) that although they have the same ingredients, they have 7 iron pill days, and therefore less active pills.

What is the functional difference between 4 vs. 7 non-active pill days? Will it affect me differently? Is this a switch I should discuss with them? Do I need to be careful about having sex with condoms for a while since I'm making a change to a different combo of active/inactive pills, or is it a smooth transition that wouldn't compromise my protection?
