I noticed today that I filled my airlock over the fill line. Should I take a lil water out b4 I start bubbling or should I leave it alone?

What you did is fine,no worries m8. I think it's a matter of the level of water vs how easy the co2 built up can escape. I'cve noticed repeatedly that the lower the liquid level in the airlock,the quicker it bubbles during initial fermentation. Just something I happened to notice.
