Diabetics level

Hi , I'm aware of standard diabetics levels but I have two question 1. I'm taking diabetics medicine , so what would be ideal time to check pre meal sugar level , should I check after 30-1 hour of consuming my morning pill ? Or as soon as I get up ? 2. I checked at 8 pm it was sugar level is 165 that's before dinner but I had light snack at 6 PM biscuits , tea ( sugarless ) etc , so the reading will fall in pre meal or post meal category ?
