Plan B can make your cycle change and can cause bleeding early, it may have been more like a withdrawal bleed on the pill or it could be a proper period, the earlier in a cycle you take it the more effect it can have on your period, as normally ovulation controls when you get your period and ovulation with a 4 weeks cycle happens roughly in the middle of it and its progesterone levels dropping after this that make you come on, with the Plan B it gives you a big dose of progesterone which you wouldn't normally get before ovulation and as this wears off your body can think it's the end of a cycle and make you have a period.
I would see a doctor though as you're getting pains in your side, it could be nothing or could be because the Plan B stopped ovulation when there was a decent sized follicle already but some forms of birth control especially progesterone only types can make you slightly more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy, you can also get brown bleeding with that so it's worth getting it checked out just to be on the safe side xx
