In brief: Depends
Did you have your period on 12/28? The birth control pills should be started within 6 days of the first day of your period.
If you did not start on your period, you may have ovulated and should take a pregnancy test.

Also a lot of the new low dose pills cause you to miss your period. Better to take a pregnancy test and put you fears to rest.
