took nut off dipstick

well as it says i took the big nut off of the dip stick holder that goes into the side of the oil pan a couple days ago but i aint said nothin to no one but i was wondering if there was any way to check if i droped an o ring or anything?
when i took off the nut started flush with what it screwed onto and when i put it back on it was still flush
what do you guys think i should do
its been eating at me like crazy since i did it

Did the flange come away from the pan? The o-ring SHOULD either stay stuck to the flange or the pan. I'm not sure what would happen if the o-ring came out, would it get mashed up and just drain out in pieces on the next oil change? If it gets sucked into the oil pickup, I don't think it would be a concern, since the pickup has a screen
