I gave my venus fly trap tap water (about a tablespoon) for the first time. Is it going to die? Or will it live if I give it distilled water later?

A tablespoonful? Is your water that toxic? My guess is that it won't notice, unless you get sick when you drink a glassful. Distilled water is best, go from there, and don't worry about this. There's lots of good VFT info here, read it and relax. Do remember that it wants to be damp to soggy all the time.

Unless you have well water NEVER give your VFT tap water. Distilled or rainwater only. Flush the soil out with distilled a few times.
