In brief: Concerned, yes
A late period may represent a early pregnancy.
You should be concerned if contraception was not used and the potential pregnancy was unintended. The time to be "scared" is before a sexual event without contraceptive protection.

Why are you scared? Did it not occur to you that unprotected sex might result in pregnancy, or worse, sexually transmitted disease. Please, think long and hard about this and support your girlfriend and help her with the problem.
