As other people here have said, freshman year is typically the least important for colleges. They'll put a lot more stock into your junior year and senior fall.
Separately though, no matter what the year, *one* B- isn't going to kill your chances at anything. Your overall GPA is much more important, and while a B- would pull that down a bit, a mix of As and Bs is still going to give you a strong enough GPA for most places.
Nope, most 99% of colleges only look at your Junior/Senior Year grades. You'll be just fine, and keep up the good work.
Adding on another answer of no! A single grade of a B- won't matter much, if at all, to colleges. I think this might be especially true when you're a freshman taking a junior level course.
