If it was just one day that too so early on,then there shouldnt be any effect on the fetus.But first please get a urine pregnancy test to confirm your pregnancy.

As you had relation and on 12th day of intercourse you had x ray done if at all you have been pregnant then mostly there are no chances of any abnormality.You have not mentioned on which day of menses you had intercourse so that if it was in safe period then no need for pregnancy test ,but if it was during ovulation period then you need to go for UPT on completion of a month and further if you are pregnant then you need to get screening of sonography on regular basis for confirmation of normal foetus and if doctor suggest then immediately go for abortion.

Hope this helps,
