The unknown call could be a coincidence.

As long as you dont have any questionable apps you should be fine. 

If you are worried you can call your credit card company and monitor your statements just in case

Most wallets built to contain both credit cards and a phone would have an RF screen built in to prevent interaction between the cards and the device. It also would protect you from malicious outsiders trying to gather information from RF intelligent cards.
