When i did have sex it was only like a day or two after my period, is that bad? Am i more likely to get pregnant because of that?

Really, it's very hard to predict when you are most or least likely to get pregnant (unless you have regular cycles and are charting your body temperature and monitoring your cervical mucus to know when you ovulate).

Basically, having unprotected intercourse at any time is "bad" if you don't want to get pregnant.

As ookuotoe said, if it's been less than 72 hours, you need to go and get emergency contraception now. If it's been longer than that, then you'll have to wait until you can take a pregnancy test.
