I am as much of a newb at this as you can get...trying to learn

The only real way to tell is to A) look at it and see if there is signs of krausen and if not, then b) take a hydrometer reading.

You didn't pitch your yeast in wort that was too hot, did you? Also did you use a smack pack, rehydrate, or otherwise proof the yeast before pitching?

Well, all things considered it's probably fine.

Worst case you'll just have to throw another pack of yeast in there. No biggie.
