I've been on a combination birth control pill for several

Patient : I've been on a combination birth control pill for several years. The last 7 days are placebo pills. After the 7 days of placebos, I missed the 1st pill of my new pack, but took it 24 hrs later at the same time as the 2nd pill. 24 hours after that, I took the 3rd pill. I had intercourse about 3 hours later. My last cycle was 2/4 -2/7. My question is, should I take a Plan B since I took the 1st pill 24 hours late? Or am I in the clear since I took 2 pills after that?
