If she "walked back" you didn't get busted she just blew caz she knew something wasn't right and she was trying to get you to move. Now if she would had ran then she seen something she did not like and was getting back to safety fast !
On a walk away you'll be fine, but watch your scent and try siting a little later

Don't get caught up thinking that just cause you got "located" means you have to change your stand location. Deer aren't THAT smart!
