Toilet Wax Ring

Hey all. The screws on my toilet that hold the toilet to the wax ring never had covers installed on top of them. So I loosened the nuts on the ring screws so that I could install cover caps on them. However, when one of the nuts was loosened, I accidentally leaned on the toilet a bit, and heard a hiss of pressure as the toilet lifted up a bit. It didn't lift much, and I let it down right away. I was wondering if I may have damaged the seal, and if I should get a new one. I did flush the toilet after tightening the nut back down and everything seemed normal. However I'm still a bit worried. I don't want to get water damage on my ceiling below. Thanks for the input!
