Abotion needs: Depending on your age - over 18 - no issue - just contact a provider in your area - you are early in the process so the procedure should be able to be performed without difficulty. If you are under 18 - depending on state laws you may need a parent's permission. And not to "preach" but next time - use precautions so that you don't find yourself in this situation. Good luck.
