Major mess up!!

I don't know what to do now. I was knitting the regular gusset and after row 5 the instructions just said to continue to knit in pattern, well on row 6, I did the M1R and I K5 by accident, and proceeded Row 7: knit,
row 8: k6,
row 9: knit,
row 10: k7,

instead of K6, K8 and K10, so now I don't know what to do and I am not so comfortable ripping the whole thing out. And I thought I was doing so well! :(

Ok first, relax :) Even experienced knitters make mistakes.

Did you do the same thing on both sides? So you have 9 stitches in your gusset instead of 10? Personally I would just do 9 and go on, unless you really hate the way it looks, but it's the crotch, so it's not like anyone can see it, and it probably looks fine, anyway.

I think I have 10 at this point. It doesn't look too bad but the left increases aren't in the correct spots. I did the same on both sides. I just don't want it to loose its stretch.

Ok, I am not sure how many I actually have I am thinking I have about 13 or 14??? I did 10 rows in the gusset section, plus 1 row of plain knitting to end the pattern. I started with 40 stitches before any increases, now I have 54 on each side! Does that mean I have 14 stitches in my gusset? I am so confused.

Can you take a closeup picture of the gusset and I can help you count them?
