Yes, you can get pregnant any time you are sexually active. No birth control method works to protect against pregnancy 100%. Condom failure rate is something like 12%, meaning that if 100 women are active and use condoms as their bc method for one year, during that year 12 of them will become pregnant.

Being a day late is not that unusual. I would try not to worry too much. It is possible to get pregnant when using a condom correctly every time and it does not break or come off, but the odds are fairly low. If your period doesn't show up in a couple of days you can take a test and it should be quite accurate at that point. How long are your cycles usually?

This is actually the failure rate for typical use, which includes people "forgetting" to use a condom. Failure rate for perfect use is 2-3% (which is obviously still a chance of pregnancy, but much lower!) Perfect use would be using a condom every single time, making sure they're stored correctly, and putting them on correctly.
