In brief: 19% Failure rate

As a method of contraception, withdrawal fails about 19% of the time.
For comparison, condoms fail 15%, the pill 3-7%, and iuds less than 1%.

In brief: Withdrawal

You are most definitely at risk to get pregnant with this method, but no one can tell you a completely accurate numerical risk.
This is called the 'withdrawal method' and clinical experience suggests it's no better than 70% effective. Consider your options.
