2lb 12oz Belgian Caramel Pils 8L
1lb 8oz American White Wheat 2L
11oz Belgian Caramunich 50L
6oz American Crystal 10L
Also, My carboy is being used right now so I had to use my bottling bucket to ferment and the lid was just a slightly not on all the way. I snapped it shut today but I'm a little worried my fermentation might be totally "f"ed. Just wondering if I should worry about that.
You didn't really use any base malt, other than the wheat. That's why your OG was so low. Belgian caramel pils is a crystal- not a base malt. You used almost all crystal malt, which won't convert into fermentable sugars. With only 1 pound 8 ounces of base malt (the white wheat), your OG of 1.022 is about right.
