BCP question

I know the effectiveness of birth control pills is a topic that's been covered thoroughly in this community so forgive me for a repeat question.

I take Ocella (a generic form of Yaz, I beleive) - it's a 21/7 pill. I take my last active pill on a Saturday morning and then start a new pack the following Sunday morning.

Since technically, Sunday is the 8th day since my last active pill - does that mean I'm not protected the first 7 days of the new pack?

Not sure I've ever posted here before but just wanted to say this community has been incredibly helpful so thank you all!! :)
