Can't find files after creating repository in atom

Hi, I am kind of new to atom and github as can tell. I have been using atom for a while for python coding and today I was looking into linking it with github. I tried to figure things out on my own before I watched a tutorial in linking atom with github. I ended up creating a repository of my project with all my codes, and the next thing I know is all my folders became empty. Is there a way to undo this repository and get my files back?
