In brief: Possibly.

Although one late pill should not be disastrously important, if you are unlucky and happen to ovulate you could get pregnant.
Correlate with your sexual activity in the preceding 3-4 days (that's how long spermatozoa can survive in your genital tract after vaginal intercourse) and consider taking the Plan B pack on top of your regular contraception. Check a pregnancy test within 2-3 weeks!
