I was doing the DIY replacement of a radiator and I accidentally unscrewed the front AC condenser line which I though was part of the radiator. This caused coolant to spray out. I was able to get it to stop but some did leak out. 

Did I cause any more damage that I may not be aware of or was !Removed! the bolt back the simple fix? I have no idea what it looked like before but it does not look like it is screwed back in all the way. 

Should it be flush?

If it doesn't leak and you didn't lose much liquid, I would suggest that you monitor it for a while before getting too worried.

If you look closely at the picture, where the two pieces connect, there is a gap that didn't close correctly because of the pressure coming out. If i unscrew it, will I be able to tighten it correctly with the pressure coming out or do I need to let it completely drain out?

I think it'd be worth a try, although it's hard for me to believe that the static fluid pressure is high enough to do this.
