Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Unprotected intercourse is associated with risk of pregnancy but chances are more during the ovulation period.Having intercourse just few days before the expected period date has less chances of pregnancy.

After 2 days you had Postinor 2 which is an emergency contraceptive pill and causes sudden changes in the hormones and it might have caused delay in the periods.It is also associated with effects as nausea,vomitting,fatigue,irregular bleeding etc.
Since you had again sexual contact after the pill intake so that would not provide any protection against pregnancy for the later or concecutive acts.

It is too early for the test to show up.Wait for the periods to start.They might start within a week or so.If they do not start then consider visiting a Gynaecologist for examination and evaluation.

Take care!
