I don't know how this happened but I parked my car and left it RUNNING AND UNLOCKED (I can't believe it!!!) Two hours later I came back to the car and found it like that. Is there something wrong with my car now? Should I get it looked at? Is it going to die?

The only thing that happened is that the engine was running and you used some gasoline in the process. Did you turn it off and turn in back on? I would do that to just check the battery. If it turns on like normal, you are fine.
It is just like you drove for 2 hours.. in the sense that the engine was running.. except seeing that the car was idle, the belts in the engine were just running.
If you just turned the car on, didn't start the engine, and left it on overnight, then you would either need a new battery or be jump started because your old one would be dead and you wouldn't be able to start the car.
You should be perfectly okay. Don't fret :)1
