In brief: No

Modern x-ray is relatively safe.
The new machines produce a targeted beam which equals less scatter and less risk to the rest of your body.

In brief: No

The amount of radiation you received was still small by comparison to computed tomography (ct) or other radiographic dye studies.
You're a male, make new sperm every day so the chance for long term adverse effects is slim.
