messed up brake fluid change - help

i was just about done on the last wheel using my Ace hardware pressure bleeder when i ran out of fluid. i use Castrol LMA and i thought i had a small bottle laying around and grabbed one that looked like it. i topped up the reservoir with the stuff but then when i was cleaning up i saw that the little bottle was a Dot 3 fluid. i had not driven the car yet so i sucked out most of the fluid in the reservoir and poured the correct bottle in. i had been doing other stuff and was a little bit distracted i guess. now, i'm worried about the Dot 3 stuff that may still be in the system. i think that other bottle may have been from the PO - the fluid was pretty dark in the reservoir (dissolved rubber?). do i have to do everything over?
