Was late a couple times last week on taking pill. Just had unprotected sex, been on the pill for 3 months. Should i be worried. This week is my period?

In brief: Yes

You didn't mention how late you were in taking the pill.
If you're late solely by a couple of hours that shouldn't be a problem. If you miss a pill for greater than 24 hours, it might be a good idea to use a backup method like a condom in addition to taking your pill.
