Yes, take the pills again right now. Plan B is NOT intended for regular or frequent usage, but the risks and drawbacks of unintended pregnancy likely outweigh the pronounced side effects. Since you've had two pregnancy risks so close together, you should take a pregnancy test in about two weeks to make sure you're not pregnant.
May I ask why a reliable birth control method was not used if you wanted to avoid getting pregnant? Is your partner refusing to use condoms? Any way we can help you to make sure this doesn't happen again?

No use freaking yourself out. Just get the pills, follow the instructions, and wait to test; stress does nothing to help the situation.
What you SHOULD be thinking and stressing about is why this happened in the first place, and what you can do to protect yourself in the future; being prepared to protect oneself from pregnancy and STI's (You need to be tested for those, too, from unprotected sex) is the main marker of readiness to be sexual with a partner at all. We're around if you need help figuring out how to go about this.
