Overflowed bathtub

A couple months ago my daughter overflowed the bathtub in the house we were renting. I caught it really quick and was able to dry the carpet/tile fast and it didn't leave any carpet staining or anything. A week or so later I noticed 2 small water stains on the garage ceiling which is directly below the bathroom. It wasn't leaking,saggy or anything just a dry water stain. I painted over it but it's still slightly noticeable. There isn't any mold or anything like that.

My husband suddenly got a new job so we moved to a new town and the house we were in will be taken over by a new family. I never told our landlord what happened not because I was being sneaky but because it didn't do any damage than slight cosmetic but now I am feeling like I made a bad judgement call and maybe I should have told her. They have done walk throughs and have never said anything to me and will do the final one tomorrorw or Wednesday. I just want to know if it's okay and isn't a huge deal. I read to just paint it over if ita small water stain because it's okay so that's what I did. Anyways any advice would be welcome. I feel like I am in a weird spot. Do I not say anything or should I. Not even sure if this is the right place to ask this but I just found it and thought I would give it a shot.

Should have use a stain blocking primer then painted it.
Move on and forget about it.

Hindsight is always 20/20 huh? I should have done, that. Now just worried about the reaction to the landlord if they catch it (even though it isn't that bad). Thanks for posting
