Hello, i had sexual intercourse, my partner ejaculated in me and i took the morning after pill within 24hours, about 8 days later i got what i though was my period, but it lasted about a day, and it was so light, extremely light, and i've been nauseous and having pee breaks all the time, my heads been hurting, and i have cramps. should i be really worried?

It's generally advised to take a pregnancy test after using Plan B if a period is missed or late.

If this bleeding was very different than your usual periods, or came at a very different time than your period usually does, that may not have been your period, but spotting as a side effect of Plan B, which is common.

If we assume that wasn't your period, are you late for your period at this point?

Again, spotting or bleeding can both be side effects of Plan B, and side effects from one dose of Plan B can sometimes happen even a month or two after taking it.

I can't say if this was your period or not, but again, a pregnancy test is generally advised after a risk that requires Plan B. So, I'd say to just go ahead and do that.

Since it sounds like your period was already due, now should be just fine.
