seriously don't worry about it. Everyone (I mean absolutely everyone) has days when they're less productive. You have literally, like, 3 months until exams. It's no wonder you're not feeling particularly motivated or urgent about revision because 3 months is a long time.
I find the best way to get out of revision ruts is to find something to reward yourself, and seeing as you've still got a while left I'd say take tomorrow off- it'll make it easier to work this evening as you'll be motivated by the prospect of a day without revision (hooray!). For the next month or two just focus on making sure you have all your notes and that you understand everything. Don't worry about learning anything because you will not remember any of it come May/June. You could try changing the way you work (posters/flashcards/making revision powerpoints works for me, do whatever suits). Take breaks (I do a 10 minute break for every 45-70 minutes, and make them proper breaks: leave the room, go talk to someone, don't just sit and check facebook). Kudos to you for starting early, but really don't fret about it just yet (you've got plenty of time to get worked up over it).
Just remember that I didn't start until April and got 9A*s or someth like that (also the fact I can't even remember what I've got will prove to you that in a couple years time those three or four days that you spent faffing around and not doing anything productive will seem blissfully insignificant)
Best of luck!
