Yes. You can start the pill at anytime after your period ends. You could wait one or two weeks after it's over and be okay. Just don't start it while you're on your period.

As long as you are not late in starting your next pack of pills, and took the prior cycle correctly, there's no additional risk of pregnancy on the last day of your period. If you're late starting the new pack, use a back up method of birth control until you've taken seven pills correctly.

What if your period has lasted two weeks?

If you're really worried, you should talk to your doctor, but it's usually fine, especially if you're a young girl who is only just starting to get her period. Something similar happened to me, except that it lasted for months, until I went on birth control to stop it. It shouldn't be harmful unless you feel you're losing too much blood and getting dizzy or something.
