I am not entirely sure how water it was. It feel like liquid, but I could see like brown stuff at the bottom, so I feel like it was just loose, cause if it was complete liquid it would not sink I guess

This small amount of watery stool 20 min after you took your pill should not effectiveness of your pill. The time is too short for it to be lost in the stool and the amount of stool is too small. I would not worry.
