I had the same thing happen to a red, it was my second brew and you know what I forgot to do?

When I topped it off to make it 5 gal, I forgot to shake it up. So I was taking readings out of the water I topped off with, instead of the mixture. Which gave me a super low reading. I mixed it up and got a better reading. But like the guys are saying here, its no big deal. Just let it ride.

Thanks for all the help everyone!!! I just flipped my lid when I came in so low. Had I thought it out rationally then I see exactly what you guys are saying. I read and re read the directions probably 12 times before I put up my post. And of course th directions do not say shake the hell out of it then take your OG measurement. Thanks again guys, this forum has been a life saver
