Queen cell in 1 month old install…am I doomed?

Hi all. Thanks for the guidance and advice so far.

Background: zone 7a, package installed on 4/2 onto wax foundation, fed 1:1 syrup and (natural) pollen patty.

On today’s inspection, observed open queen cups and 1 completely closed queen cell. Bees had only drawn and filled about 5.5 or 6 of the 10 (langstroth) frames so far.

Located the queen, capped brood, larva in multiple stages, and observed eggs.

All the undrawn/empty frames were at one end of the box so I added them in between drawn and used frames.

Is this colony doomed to swarm?
