I missed a pill and had sex the next day. I took 2 pills a few hours later. Could I be pregnant?

I have been on the pill, Yasmin, for 3 months. I missed the pill (usually taken at 8am) yesterday (day 3 of the second week of 'active pills') and had unprotected sex this morning. At noon today I realized what I had done and took 2 pills. Is there a risk of pregnancy? Will I be ok if I take 2 pills tomorrow and continue on a regular schedule? Should I think about taking the emergency contraceptive pill?
