I drove like for 10 minutes with emergency brake on HELP PLEASE!?

i just got a car yesterday, and i already screwed it up i guess.
goddddd.
okay so i noticed the smell but couldnt figure out what was wrong with it
like i said, like 10 minutes the fastest i got up to was about 45. the brakes were still working fine afterwards but it smelled horrible. I have a 2000 mustang. how much money will it cost to fix? what can i do about it?
omg im so stupidd

honestly you should be fine, you just wore your E-brake and the corresponding brake disc down a little quicker then ussual as along as the E-brake still can be applied and not slip then you dont need to fix anyhting

Pull and release the emergency brake a few times to make sure it isn't stuck. Drive it, and if you don't smell it again you are fine.

The emergency brake is really just a cable that locks up your rear brakes. If they aren't stuck, you are fine... if they are, you probably will need new pads which you can get done pretty reasonable. Good luck!!
