You are probably fine. Take another gravity reading in three days or so and see if it's changed.

A little suck back isn't going to kill your beer.

You can but you should brew based on taste, not on volume. When you rack the beer taste it. If it tastes fine then I'd wouldn't bother with adding more water.

That said, assuming you're bottle...

It is fine. Assuming you don't smack it before opening, when you do open it up you'll find that the yeast nutrient pack is likely unbroken. Since you put the package in the refrigerator immediately...

Rock Clone. From the glass carboys of my basement I made this cloned beer for my enjoyment, as a tribute to my technical excellence. It comes from my plastic bucket to you.

Hop pellets shouldn't be brown unless they're old and/or have been stored incorrectly.

If your shop doesn't think it's anything to get worked up about, they should have no problem replacing them.
