Could Darker Period After Emergency Contraceptive Indicate Pregnancy?

I had sex roughly 5 days after getting my period and I am not sure if the condom broke or semen might have leaked. Then I was given 8 emergency contraceptive pills the morning after. And it was my first time taking any kind of contraception. And on the 7th day which is yesterday I got my period but it's darker

The dark colored period could have been a result of hormonal changes brought about by the emergency contraceptive pills. It is always encouraged to see a gynaecologist for further diagnosis and consultation.
