There is a lot of threads on this topic. Generally if you need to run non-rft and rft's, you'll want it to be on the same axle. You should be fine for the time being but get it changed asap.

Same tires on the same axle.
Do not mix RFT and non-RFT on the same axle.

for a temporary solution to get you to a tire shop and replace a flat, you'll be fine. just drive slowly and carefully and don't be a cheapass and not take care of it for days/weeks lol. it's not like your car will blow up, but the handling of the car will be all over the place and can be dangerous if pushed.
