I forgot to take two pills in one week (not in a row). I am supposed to get my period today but have not. Am I pregnant?

I have been prescribed on the birth control lutera for 3 months. During the first or second week of taking my new birth control pack this month, I forgot to take my pill on that Sunday, so I took two pills the Monday after. Then, I forgot to take my pill on that Tuesday, so I took two on the Wednesday after. I normally get my period on the Thursdayof my Sugar pills. I do not have my period yet. I am having cramps and my breasts hurt. Am I pregnant? We did not have sex when I forgot the pills but I did have sex without a condom the Saturday after I forgot taking the pills. I am very worried if I am pregnant...
