LOL no worries as long as you didn't hurt something then no harm was done!
A good compromise between a full on symmetrical duck stance, and a forward stance would be something like -6 or your back foot, and +15 on your front. That stance should be great for the first year or so and then start adjusting from there. If you spend too much time adjusting stance while you're learning you may have trouble learning the basics.
