Yes, there is a pregnancy risk- emergency contraception works after the fact, not before. Unfortunately, if she does not want to become pregnant, she will need to take EC again.

Is there a reason why you guys had unprotected sex right after taking EC? All unprotected genital contact presents a pregnancy risk.

[Edit: too, if this happened on Wednesday, as I think your post says, EC is only effective 120 hours after a risk, so if she wants to get it again, she's gotta do it by tomorrow.]
