Lost Birth Control, Unprotexted Sex

Patient : I take Junel FE (the one that has the week of iron pills at the end). On, 8/29/15 I lost the last active birth control pill in my pack. I skipped the pill on 8/29/15 and went on to the "dummy" pills on 8/30/15. On 9/6/15, I started my new birth control pack. I had unprotected sex that night, on 9/6/15, using the withdrawal method. Should I be worried about pregnancy? And should I take an emergency contraceptive?
Symptoms:  None
