Poorly Timed Bleeding on the Ring

So, according to my handy-dandy little calendar, I'm due to take my NuvaRing out at 7:30 this coming Wednesday.

This morning, Monday, I woke up and got in the shower, only to discover that I was bleeding.

And now I'm starting to worry.

I've been on the Ring for almost 8 months straight now, and this is my second stint on it. I've never had any breakthrough bleeding on it before. That being said, when I did have breakthrough bleeding on my other BC, it was more of a pink twinge in the toilet for a day or two. this came on like a real period - old blood first, and a fair amount of it.

Now, my old handy-dandy calendar stopped on July 1st, so I suppose it's possible (though pretty unlikely - I usually double check this stuff pretty frequently) that I recorded the insertion date wrong and have actually had this Ring in a week too long.

So I guess my question is this: has anyone ever gotten their period early on the Ring, or have you ever kept yours in a week too long and had one regardless of the Ring's insertion?

I'm also really confused about what to do now - should I leave the Ring in until Wednesday just to be safe, or should I take it out now, wait a full week, then start from scratch? I'm currently without a GP or OB (summer break + school doctors = screwed), so I really don't have anyone to talk to about this. Help me out, ladies.
