Check a test : It sounds more like you just had an episode of midcycle spotting since you are the middle of this menstrual cycle. Anyone having sex without birth control or condoms is at risk of getting pregnant. The only way to know will be to check a test. If you miss your period then take one and you will have your answer. If negative see your doctor for irregular periods.
