How did those 7 reps feel? You are new enough to this that you might be able to push through without a problem. In any case, you are just starting out so whatever you do now won't have much long term bearing so don't over think it.
Good advice - thank you!

All good. I'm going to increase the weight on press. I'm going to do the powerlifting template so I'm cool with a weight I can only get 7 on for now.
