I just getting over the freaking flu, and my diet has been crap. Ive still maintained my protein intake, but my fat has increased dramatically, because of the flu. Should I be okay, I mean its only been a week?

Do you mean your dietary fat or body fat has increased? If dietary only, then you'll be fine. Just get it back in line.

You should be fine. If you're really worried, I'd reccomend the standard inactivity advice -- go very low on carbs. Dietary fat in and of itself isn't a worry; eating too much is.

Note that going low on carbs in periods of low activity allows you to better mobilize fats, which will help you a) not gain fat and b) potentially lose fat.
