Dear sharaddhapatil,
The emergency pill is 85% effective if taken between 25-48 hours after unprotected sex. There is a possibility of you getting pregnant especially after having a missed period.
You should have a home or blood test and if positive please start taking Folic acid supplement and visit your doctor to have an ultrasound to document a healthy intrauterine pregnancy and exclude ectopic pregnancy. If the test is negative you may wait for spontaneous menstruation or visit your doctor to prescribe you progesterone to induce menstruation.
I hope these words were useful and wish you good luck.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.

Sometimes periods can be late as such you can wait a couple of days for your period.
Taking a home pregnancy test is also a good option as it is a fast and relatively cheap way of getting an answer to your question.
If the home pregnancy test is inconclusive then you can go to a doctor to get your blood work checked.
I hope this helped.
