Yes but . . .: Rather than speculate ; worry about this, go take a home pregnancy test now (as you may be pregnant from prior unprotected sex, not necessarily this most recent episode). Assuming it's negative, be sure to protect yourself until next period. If late, take another pregnancy test. If still negative, you're probably in the clear but need to continue to protect yourself. Set a daily alarm for ur pill.
