    STEM OPT Received case number but check not cashed

    I applied for STEM OPT extension on 9th April (Friday) via FedEx to TX dropbox. I was notified that the package was received on 13th April (Monday). On Wednesday I received a text message from USCIS that my application was received with a case number and I797 would follow in the mail. Although I have not received the receipt of the application, my check has not been cashed yet. When I check the status on the website, I only see that the case was received on Monday April 13th and I797 would follow in mail. My initial OPT expires on 3rd June.
    I have crosschecked every detail of I-765 with my DSO and the payment was made using a personal check. My bank account has sufficient balance for the payment to be processed and the check was addressed for $410.00 to U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
    1. Has it ever happened to someone else where they received the case number and check cashed later?
    2. Has this situation ever led to any problems in the past for anyone?
    3. Should I be worried?
