If she decides to press charges against you (by calling the cops and making a report), then, yes, you can get in trouble.
The best thing you can do, is call the cops where it happened (in case it happened in a different city/county from where you live), let them know what happened. Tell them everything that you just said above. Bottom line: be honest. Yeah, you feel "bad" for hitting a girl, but it was self defense. If they ask if you want to press charges, you can tell them, no, but you just wanted the report documented.
The problem is if she goes to the cops first, their story is already biased toward her. They're going to ask, "If she did all this to you, why didn't you come to us first?" sort of thing. Again, you didn't do anything wrong, it'll just look bad if you don't tell the cops. Tell them you just want it documented in case SHE goes to them. Good luck, and remember, tell the TRUTH! I'm not just telling you that 'cause it's the right thing to do, I'm telling you 'cause it's easier to keep your story straight.
