Forgot to tighten the coolant cap> coolant spilled any problems???

I checked my coolant level at home and forgot to tightened the cap so I drove to work and when I arrived I noticed the smell of coolant so I opened the hood to check it and thats when I noticed the cap was loose and the coolant was spilling. Could that have caused any major problems? Also can I refill it with water meanwhile? What kind of coolant can I use besides the one sold at the dealership? It's an 2003 BMW Engine

Thanks

No worries, rinse with water to avoid coolant to dry out,
it will make stains and corrosion if not.
You can refill with water, but I´ll recomend to use coolant. I guess your coolant is pink,
so use pink coolant.

the BMW coolant is dark Blue
Go o the supermarket and buy a gallon of distilled water
then top up the system with that
