It depends on how regular your period usually is. If you're concerned, you can take an over the counter pregnancy test. First Response can give you results this early in your cycle.

If he came on your pants only like a wipe and you were on birth control and on your peirod and bad a tampon in should you be worried?

You shouldn't be worried about pregnancy or STI/STD risk, you should however be worried about your complete lack of understanding about how conception occurs. Semen would have to get into your vagina, not on your pants, in order for you to fall pregnant and while you're on birth control even then pregnancy risk is minimal. Tampon or not, period or not, makes no difference here.

You missed the third week of pills but started your period as if it had been your fourth week should you be worried?

No this is perfectly normal. The way birth control pills work, is they are estrogen or progesterone. When a woman is pregnant the levels of these hormones increase. Birth control pills increase the estrogen levels in your body, fooling it into thinking that you are pregnant already so there is no ovulation. As the estrogen in your body decreases your body realizes that is not pregnant and sloughs off the lining of the uterus (your period) as it would normally.
