Girlfriend's period is late, is she pregnant?

Hi,
my girlfriend just told me that her period is late. It was supposed to come Tuesday (yesterday), and has not come as of Wednesday (today).

I am 20, she is 19. We are sexually active. She is on Birth Control, and I wear a condom every time we have sex. We probably have sex 3-4 times a month because our relationship is long distance.

The only thing that scares me is that the last time we had sex, the Condom fell off and neither of us are sure if I was inside of her without it or not. I have never had sex without a condom so I do not know what the sensation is like, but neither of us as far as we can remember could feel any difference in sensation.

While changing positions, before I went inside her a 2nd time, I noticed it was off. However I'm not sure if it had just fallen off when I pulled out of her to change positions, or if it had been off prior to that when I was still going inside her.

I talked with her and she said she is feeling normal "period" stuff (cramps, stomach pains) just without the blood. The night we had sex was about a week before her period typically comes. She says she does not know if she's ever missed her period before, because she never really made note of it (I am her first sexual partner so she's just now started to take real notice in that sort of stuff).

Should I be worried? IS it too soon to try a pregnancy test? Is it too late for Plan B pill?

Thank you

It doesn't sound like she's pregnant.  Try not to worry, periods sometimes are a day or two late.
