My last brew, I used a bottling bucket (with spigot) for my primary. As I was transferring via spigot to my carboy, I noticed that I forgot to remove my airlock. The OneStep sanitized water that was in the airlock had slowly dripped into my primary.

Will this affect my beer?

No. Its a small amount. Just relax, you'll still have good beer!
