Default Match and problem with J1 research visa

I am a postdoctoral research fellow ,
I just realized that for 9 months I got a salary from my boss' NIH grant.
Am I a subject for the 2 years home residency requirement?
I have applied for internal medicine and until now I have 3 interviews,
what do you think about it? I am extremely worried. What should I do?

Thank you in advance.
