Concern on my health status

I accidentally punctured my fridge with scissors while cleaning the frozen ice. An unknown gas coming out from it and it took me some time to cover it up. I inhale the gas for quite a time while I am in front the fridge and I’m doubting if it is dangerous for me or not. There is no distinct effect but I do need clarification.
