You now have to pay the collection agency.  I advise reading the articles on this site so you can understand how credit works, and how to build a good credit score.

Usually not much you can do. It is normal to have the original account in negative status and a collection account in addition. A good double-ding to your credit for a single account. Happens to everyone, not just you. You can do some reading on "pay for delete agreements" in addition to how to deal with collections and other negative marks on your credit. Feel free to ask more questions, but please be more specific for more specific advice, just don't give any personal info.
