I'm in the midst of brewing my firt batch and I ended up pouring the wort (trub and all) into the primary. I've searched the forum but can't find any guidance on this. Is the beer shot?

relax my man....trub won't hurt your fermentation at all. Some believe it actually helps. Let it get thru primary and rack off from the trub for a secondary settling.
No probs amigo

Relax man, it's fine. In Palmer's http://www.howtobrew.com he has us beginners do just what you did, in order to properly aerate the wort. As long as it wasn't still hot when you poured it, your beer should be just fine. My first two brews (bottling day is today!) were done just like that, and they've cleared up nicely after three weeks!

It can only be harmful if it was hot when you poured. If it was, there might be some risk of oxidization and wet-cardboard flavors.
