Thanks for your query.
Having unprotected intercourse on the fifth day of your periods has very less chances of resulting in a pregnancy, particularly as you immediately took the I pill.
After the I pill, some kind of irregular bleeding or spotting might occur within a few days, but it is not the rule always.
Your normal period might be delayed or preponed by a week or more after taking the ipill.
In future, switchover to some reliable method if contraception.
Also, you have to wait for your next period to be sure you are not pregnant.
If you do not have a period for 4 weeks , please take a urine pregnancy test.
Take care, and feel free to discuss further.
