You don't need to do anything, but...Trust us. These are techniques you will use in your future knitting life so no better way to learn than on a scarf. Better than halfway through a sweater.

That said...you can also just keep knitting and ignore it and make a swatch to learn on.

From the angle you took the picture, turn the needle and your work so the working yarn is in back. This is usually with the needle in your right hand. Slip the end stitch to the other needle. Each stitch has 2 legs, one in front of the needle, one it bakc. In standard knitting the end closest to the tip of the needle is in front and that's how you normally knit a stitch; but if the stitch gets twisted, it could be in back. So if you knit into the 'leading' leg or the one closest to the tip, the stitch will be untwisted.

OK I think I got it straightened out but while knitting that row,I noticed that I somehow got all of the stitches turned around,I think...how did I manage that?And I think I knit the first stitch before realizing this,is this an issue?

If your stitches are twisted you knit into the back of the stitch to straighten it out. Or you can flip each one as you come to it, but the other way is faster. I don't know exactly what you man, but if you mean the first one is twisted you can frog that one stitch like I suggested and redo it, OR just ignore it. It's only one stitch.

You must have put the needle back in with them twisted. Do the 'knit through the leg closest to the tip) on all the stitches and that will untwist them. We've got a video for that.

Well I already knit them all and turned them around as I got to them,except for that first or second one..which I'm going to have to leave alone before I get discouraged and quit.

Yeah, just leave it; some patterns have you knit twisted stitches on purpose, and it won't show on garter stitch anyway.
