I started a one gallon batch of mead last night. It is my first time, woke up this morning to look at it pictures to show, is something wrong with it? Do I need to fix it? How do I fix it? What went wrong if anything?

Just clean out your airlock and reset it. You had just.enough volume for.it to reach the bottom of the airlock when it started to foam up.

You could take off the airlock and bung, and cover the opening with a clean paper towel or sanitized piece of close, and hold that on with a rubberband. Then, when fermentation slows, put the airlock set up back on. You definitely do NOT need an airlock right now!

Okay so I put on a new air lock and it’s starting to blow off into the airlock again. Should I empty the jug a little so the blow off won’t reach? Would that mess up the fermentation progress?

Please follow Yooper's advice. Otherwise, you may wind up with a plugged airlock which in turn could lead to an explosive event involving major clean up.
