If you didn't use birth control correctly, and did not do the responsible thing of obtaining emergency contraception, then yes you should be worried because pregnancy risk is high. Your menstrual cycle isn't a Swiss watch, it changes constantly - even with the most regular cycle you are still guessing when your period is due based on your average menstrual cycle, anything up to a weeks variation from this is normal and late periods are normal from time to time too. Unless you use FAM you can't know exactly when your period is due, so a few days 'late' isn't a big concern itself.
