Welcome to ehealthforum.
There could be chances of pregnancy if you have had unprotected intercourse while being on antibiotics. Few antibiotics are known to diminish the efficacy of hormonal contraceptives. Wait for another week and see if you get your usual periods. If you do not get your usual periods, then go ahead with examination by a gynecologist along with blood HCG level test to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
