Brief Answer:
not much harm, avoid in future

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I understand your health concern.
Ideally it should not be taken but as taken twice by you unknowingly, it won't harm much as you are just 24 weeks pregnant and taken only two doses of it.
From future avoid taking it and in case toothache bothers you a lot then take tablet paracetamol which is safest analgesic in pregnancy but at times tooth ache doesn't respond to it then take tramadol tablet twice a day.
All the best.
