In brief: Not recommended

Theraflu is not recommended to be taken during pregnancy.
It is a category c drug which means that there is no direct data linking it to problems in the human fetus, but it has been shown to have adverse effects in animal models. This being said, if you already took it, i would not worry. I just would not recommend taking any more!
