Missed Birth Control Pill Gildess FE

Patient

Q: I am taking the birth control pill Gildess FE 1/20. I have been taking it for 5 months and just recently I missed my first pill. I missed an active white pill on the last day of the first week of this pack. The next day I took 2 pills. However that same day I also started taking Cipro for a UTI. I took cipro for 3 days. Just yesterday I had unprotected sex which is 7 days after my missed pill. Should I be worried and get Plan B?
