If you normally take your pills in the evening, and you made up your missed pill this morning, than yes, you should take the pill you would normally take tonight at your regular time.

Missing one pill by what sounds like less than 12 hours will not have a significant impact on the effectiveness of your pill, unless you are on the mini pill.

So long as you are on the combined pill, you should be fine.
