Canning Pickled Beets - brine level dropped

Hello, new to canning and new to pickling. I made some pickled beets and while the brine level did cover the cut up beets in the jar before I processed it, when the 30 minute processing in a hot water bath was done, the liquid level was slightly lower, and now a few of the uppermost beet slices are above the brine level. Is this a major problem? And if it is, can I still throw them in the fridge and eat them in a week or two?
Thanks!!!

Yes, your pickling shuld have enough acidity and sweetness to balance. But you can keep those in the frig and eat as fridge pickles

Could you flip the entire container on its head? I store all my jarred things upside down so the air won't get into the jar.
