Default Coolant overfill causing a CEL? (scared to drive my car now)

i just finished checking all the fluids on my car and i accidentally overfilled the overfill tank for the coolant past its max mark (like an inch or so over the line).

i just added some prestone all make all model fluid (bottle says can be mixed in with any coolant)

after that i only got a few drops below the radiator onto that plastic plate.

but can overfilling my overfill tank for the radiator coolant throw a CEL? i havent checked the codes yet.
