Last week I ate 1k cals over my maintenance every day. My scale broke so I don't know how much I gained but will I have gained 2 lbs since 3500 calories= 1 pound, or will not all of the calories be converted to fat/muscle? Could I have only gained 1 lb bc of water weight? Thoughts??

If your scale broke I'd definitely drop the calories.

Water doesn't count as calories so yes you should have gained roughly 2 pounds. There is the obvious margin of error and fluctuation in your energy use to consider and now that you are probably not eating at the same level you have probably already dropped some of that weight.
