Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
There is nothing to worry as chances of pregnancy are almost negligible because at that time there was no egg in your body to form a baby and you took emergency pill on the top of it.
Withdrawal bleeding occurs only in 30-40% of cases after this.
But in general avoid emergency pill intake too often.
