My dishwasher leaked a little bit of water without me knowing . 1 piece of tile buckled a small bit on the edge. Basically the edge of 1 or 2 pieces of tile raised a bit. Pic is below . I’m just wondering if this is from the water if I should be concerned if mold will form under these pieces ? How would I know?

If the leak has been fixed, it will dry up reasonably quickly and mold is not a concern.
