As i shifted into 2nd gear by accident pressed clutch down while driving

So when i shifted into 2nd gear as i was puting my foot on the leg rest beside the clutch by accident my foot tapped it for a second and it went down a bit. I didnt smell any burning clutch and dont recall the rpms going up. Is this a problem that a did that im scared

Doubtful, smoked a clutch a couple of times pulling a boat out in pea gravel with 2wd, traded it in at 110k and never a clutch problem.

I don’t see even the slightest chance for a problem.
