Maybe you are....: pregnant? If you had unprotected sex near your ovulation, then you may be pregnant, which would account for your symptoms. See a dr. if this continues and get checked out, good luck to you.

My period isn't for another week or two but my breasts are really sore. Should I be worried?

No worries: You are about mid cycle. Lots of hormonal changes in your body at this time. The breasts are hormone sensitive organs and are most certainly responding. Yes the breasts can get very sore at this time of the cycle particularly the nipples. You might want to reduce the caffeine in your diet and see if this improves the tendency toward breast pain.
