Netherland's Scarf. Am I doing this right?

Hello~ I'm knitting a my first scarf for Netherlands (from Hetalia) for my brother and I'm having a mini crisis with the outcome of my rows.

First of all, as background, I'm knitting it vertically, for one. But this way I only have to switch colors four times instead of a billion. XD These are my dimensions:

5 stripes; blue, white, blue, white, blue. 294 stitches per row (7 ft). 8 rows per stripe.

I'm using 2, 19", size 9 circulars and garter stitching. The yarn is Vanna's Choice.

So. The reason I'm freaking out is because I just finished what I assumed to be 8 rows on my second color (white), but the yarn finished on the other side. Here are some pictures to illustrate:

Where I started (beginning):
The back of the beginning:
Where I left off (end):

So can anyone tell me if I have indeed stitched 8 rows of each? Is it normal for the yarn to end on a different end? I'm I freaking out over nothing?? HELP.
