Yes... you should have continued taking the pills.
You should take a pregnancy test or see your doctor. In the mean time use another method of contraception such as condoms.
In depends on what week you missed the tablets as to what you should have done.
This from http://www.drugs.com/mtm/nordette.html
"... If you miss two "active" pills in a row in week one or two, take two pills per day for two days in a row. Then take one pill per day for the rest of the pack. Use back-up birth control for at least 7 days following the missed pills.
If you miss two "active" pills in a row in week three, or if you miss three pills in a row during any of the first 3 weeks, throw out the rest of the pack and start a new one the same day if you are a Day 1 starter. If you are a Sunday starter, keep taking a pill every day until Sunday. On Sunday, throw out the rest of the pack and start a new one that day."
