Mistakenly facing one's chest towards the Ka'bah while making tawaaf

Q: While performing tawaaf during Umrah, my chest faced the Kabah. I cannot recall whether it was due to crowds pushing or another reason. I did not repeat that particular round of tawaaf.

1. Is my Umrah valid?

2. Should I repeat the Umrah or give dam/sadaqah?

A:

1. Yes.

2. No.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
