Brushed my teeth and I cupped my hands to get some water. I inhaled a little bit and didnt cough, it felt like I swallowed it, then hiccups. Am I ok?

In brief: BOO!!!!! BOOOOO!!!

Yeah, you're OK as long as the "hiccups" go away.
If they last more than a couple of hours it can get annoying and painful. There are receptors at the back of your throat and upper esophagus that, if startled, could stimulate that tick-like response. Sometimes a nerve to the diaphragm gets irritated. In any case you'll be OK. There are many supposed hiccup "cures." Some quite amusing. Try a few.
