Hi Anita:
you can create the topology of your last residue with CONH2
an example is a LYS-CONH2 I name this residue as LYN, you must include
this residue in aminoacids.dat, ffXXXX.rtp

you must include this ffXXXX.hdb
LYN     3     
1	1	H	N	-C	CA
2	3	HD2	ND2	CG	CB
you must run pdb2gmx as:
pdb2gmx_402 -f test.pdb -o peptidop1_30.gro -p peptidop1_30.top -ff XXXX
-ignh  -i  peptidop1_30_posre.itp -ter 
you must set 
0 for the n-terminal and 2 for the c-terminal
