Missed birth control pill

I took my birth control pills all week (been on birth control for 5 years), and then I had unprotected sex last night. However, I'm out of town a day longer than I anticipated, so I do not have my birth control pills to take for today. If I double up on my birth control pills tomorrow (Tuesday morning), then will I be protected? Or should I go get Plan B right now?
