Horizontal drop outs and disc brakes

The chain on my pompetamine was looking a bit saggy so I pulled the wheel back slightly to take out the slack but this means the disc rotor has been pulled a small way out of the brake calliper. There’s still a good 4/5ths of brake pad on rotor but is there likely to be any issue with this? It felt OK on the ride to work this morning.

I guess the chain might have worn a bit hence the need to increase tension but replacing a static chain seems like overkill at this stage (it’s probably only done about 2k miles).
