Help! Manual Transmission meshing sound

Hi all, I just picked up my 14 v6 (16k miles on it when I took over) for about half a month till now and it runs great...Until today.

When I was on the freeway someone in front of me suddenly brake hard AF and leave me no choice but downshift&break. The thing is I'm still getting used to a manual car and panic out releasing the clutch too early and jammed the gear for about half a sec and it popped(I was actually pulling it out of gear as well since I realized I'm doing it wrong) back to neutral.

I then disengaged the clutch immediately after I realized what did I do. However, after a while, I'm starting to hear some kind of really, really low&unnoticable "meshing" sound from the gearbox. I tried to record that but It's so low that my phone can't even capture it. It's so low that once the engine rev up to 2k I just can't hear it.
Am I just being paranoid or I really screwed up and broke the gearbox?
