In brief: Late = pregnant

How late are you? You need to get a home pregnancy test and see your doctor.

In brief: If you get pregnant

Unprotected sex can delay one's period by approximately 9 months by causing pregnancy.
Unprotected sex can also allow for sexually transmitted diseases. So always make sure the guy wears a condom (and consider a 2nd form of contraception just in case). But it's doubtful that sexual activity will delay one's menses aside from above scenario.
