If its driving fine and changing gears with no issues, you are fine. Don't worry about it.

Just make sure that the wheels lock while in park. Park on a slight incline and carefully take your foot off the brake pedal. If you start rolling away the parking paw in the transmission is damaged. Since it was a one time thing at a very low speed, you should be ok. But check to be sure. Don't want you rolling away!! HTH. -Jim
