In brief: You're probably...

...about to get your period.
If you were using ONLY the pull out method, I would be more concerned about pregnancy, However, it's unlikely that you'll ovulate after missing just one pill. Of course, if your period is unusually heavy or painful, or if you don't get any period at all, you should see a doctor. Helpful?
