Don't worry, no one is judging you. Plan B is levonorgestrel, and it has higher levels of estrogen in it than regular birth control pills. Bloating is a common side effect of Plan B, so I wouldn't worry, especially this early after taking the pill. Pregnancy symptoms wouldn't begin until probably 2-4 weeks afterwards, if you did become pregnant. However, this is HIGHLY unlikely, as Plan B has a very high success rate, and the chances of pregnancy is somewhere in the ~5% range.
Just to be safe, I'd recommend going to a Planned Parenthood clinic and getting birth control pills (they offer these for free, usually) to prevent this from happening again.
To be safe, I'd also recommend asking for the vaccine at the clinic, the one that protects against HPV. Also PLEASE USE A CONDOM! You don't want herpes or another STD to worry about, being so young (I know you've heard this before, I'm sorry to be repetitive).
I'm not judging you - I get where you're coming from. Everybody makes mistakes, and it was very responsible for you to get ahold of Plan B to prevent pregnancy (females are most fertile, i.e. most likely to become pregnant if the timing is correct, when in their early teens. Fertility starts to drop after age 27). But a having sex 3 times in one day, and taking Plan B in time, you shouldn't have much reason to worry.
If you're still worried after 6 weeks, and you don't get your period, I'd say take a pregnancy test.
