I just got my new guitar a couple of days ago so I don't have a tuner. So I was using the 5 fret method, and I was tightening my high E string, when it just snapped out of place. Now the end of it is bent. Can I still use that string, or should I use a new one?

If I understand you correctly, everything should be fine, however, you should buy new strings because new guitars need new strings as a general rule.
And a tuner.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.



If you resist change, you will be here forever.

Where did the string snap out of place? Near the bridge? Nut? And, just a suggestion, I would buy a tuner if I were you. They're only about $15 and they really make tuning a lot easier for a beginner. Plus, if you want to play with other people, you'll need to be in tune with them, too, not just yourself.

Right beneath the pickups, where the string ends. Also, a little silver bead came out of place

Yep you need new strings.
Buy a Tuner and some extra High E Stings, beginners always break high Es easliy. (like Me)

The only string I ever broke was the A one.

Get a tuner, and maybe 2 packs of strings.

They sell 10-packs at places like Guitar Center, I keep those on hand because I play aggressively and break strings all the time. It's nice to have so when you need new strings they're there.
