If I understand correctly, you're saying that you're on your second pack of the pill, have been having condom-less sex with your boyfriend and that you recently missed a day but made up for it by taking the pill the following day.
If this is correct, and we're talking about one missed pill, and, otherwise, you've been correctly and consistently taking the pill, you shouldn't consider yourself as having a significant risk, or one that warrants taking Plan B.
So, one day you took your pill two hours late, and, several days later, you missed a pill and took it the next day instead?
You actually have a three-hour window or so to take the birth control pill, and one missed day like that when you've otherwise been taking your pills daily within that three-hour window shouldn't change how effective the pill is.

The pill can cause nausea. Since this is only your second month, there's a chance that this will go away. It can take the body up to three months to get used to the pill, and many side-effects will wear off by then. However, if this is really affecting your life, or if this persists after three month, go ahead and talk to your gyn about switching to a different prescription.
