Thanks for your query.
Actually birth control pills are 99 % effective in preventing a pregnancy.
So chances of them faiing are quite low.
However you have been very erratic in taking them the past month, so chances of pregnancy are reasonably high.
Just wait for your period, and if overdue, test for a pregnancy at the earliest.
Take care and feel free to ask further questions.
