I have been on the pill since January and take it consistantly. I have been on my period this week, so of course I am not taking anything at the moment. I did though have sex last night once with and then once without a condom. Could I still get pregnant?

There is always a risk of pregnancy with intercourse, but as long as you've been taking your pill correctly, that risk is very low. The bigger concern here would be STIs.
