Input into headphone instead of mic jack, insane feedback!

Hello, I wanted to listen to some music off of my phone and accidentally plugged my phone's 1/8" into the headphone jack of my laptop (meaning to plug it into the mic jack) and now I have a constant crazy echo/feedback that I can't seem to get rid of except by muting everything. I can't use my speakers at all! Has anyone had this happen, what did you do?!
