I just had an unprotected sex and I am suffering from pcod so I don't know when my periods will come because till now I don't see any signs of it. So should I take an I pill or start using duoluton from today itself.

If more than 72 hours have passed, then ipill is of no use. Duoluton also won't help if pregnancy has taken place. Wait for one week to 10 days from the due date. If periods still don't come, do a urine pregnancy test. If negative, take the duoluton.
