Period circulation longer than usual

hi. my period is normal where it usually took only 7 days. But, Last month my period took more than 7 days which is 2.5 week for it to be fully done, on the 7th days of my period the other day where i confirm the period is done i took a contraceptive pill, did the pill influence my discharge? is it normal for it to be like that?
And after that i usually produce some yellow liquid from my vagina but the liquid is quite thick like a watery, is it normal? or is it because of my daily habit of using pantyliner?
Thank you
