As long as you're taking your pills correctly, you are protected from pregnancy - hormonal birth control is over 99% effective. No need to worry about pregnancy.

The pill is designed so that you are protected throughout your entire cycle (this included your withdrawl bleed). So again, as long as you have been correctly and consistently taking your pill, it should be effective.

As it seems like this is a great source of concern for you, I'd suggest that in the future, you use condoms for all genital contact so that your risk is minimized as much as is physically possible (outside complete abstainance).
