Should i apologize for saying something awkward to her?

This girl I’ve made friends with and I have been talking off and on via tinder for a while now and I made some dumb joke in which I said she was the cutest girl in the city she lives in and she hasn’t replied. (Sent it yesterday afternoon)

I like her and want to date her, but if she’s not interested I’d still like to remain friends. I can’t tell if she was weirded out or if she isn’t into me and doesn’t want to say anything to hurt my feelings or what

Should I wait and apologize if she doesn’t reply? Should I let her know that it’s ok if she isn’t into me and that id be fine w just being friends
