Don't sweat it too much, we all have made little mistakes, this isn't a huge deal. I would assume that the carboy you have is a 5 gal as others have said, which means there is very little head space. When the fermentation gets going it will likely be going over the top and clogging your airlock. Run a blow off tube to keep everything up top from getting clogged and you should be good to go!

Probably gonna be okay. Some of my best beers have been mistakes. Check out some basic brewing videos to get a better handle on techniques. For me, I need to see stuff to understand it sometimes.
