Everyone is going to be wondering, so I am going to ask: How did you step on the soap dish?
The first thing to do is determine what was used as the backer for the tile. If it was drywall (Green board), there is a possibility that there could be damage. If it is Hardibacker or another of the cement boards, it may be fine. Your best bet is to carefully remove the tile in the area and examine the material behind them. If you don't see water damage, you can simply replace the tile with the appropriate mastic or thinset.
