I was supposed to take my first pill at 10 pm Tuesday but instead forgot and took it at 12:45 pm on Wednesday. Does a minor time change in the first pill majorly affect the rest of my pill taking? Also I was planning to take the second pill at 10 pm again on Wednesday. Is that the right thing to do?

A few hours won't make a difference- you can continue taking your pills at 10 pm. However, please do keep in mind that your pills are not fully effective against pregnancy until you've finished your first cycle!
