Brief Answer:
Wait for your periods.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The risk of pregnancy is not there as you took I-pill within 24 hours of unprotected sex.
The delay in routine period is also expected due to the side effect of the I-puill that you have taken. Do test your urine for pregnancy to rule out pregnancy again. It is best to wait for another week for your periods to start on their own.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
