In brief: Either

Wait a few days, hopefully your period will arrive.
If not by end of the weekend, take a home pregnancy test. Good luck!

In brief: More likely pregnant

Withdrawal has a failure rate of about 85%.
Unfortunately thats about as effective as no birth control at all. But, you could just be stressed out, and that can cause periods to be late. A home pregnancy test will answer your question. If you do not wish to be pregnant at this point in your life, it would be a good time to see a doctor about a method of contraception. Good luck!
