Yes if no new pack: If you did not start new pack when you finished last white pill, than it is possible that you may get pregnant as it is close to your ovulation. But if you stated the new pack, than pregnancy is unlikely.

Shouldn't : You should be covered through the entire time of all the pills, just like when you take put the NuvaRing you are still covered

Maybe: Technically, it's still possible but unlikely. If you are concerned, you may want to take something like Plan B or get a pregnancy test.
