I thawed raw sushi salmon the day before and then wrapped it in papertowels and put it in the fridge overnight, but I forgot to put a lid on the container. It the salmon still safe to eat? Since the papertowels were also a lil wet due to the frozen salmon leaking some juices.

There is nothing you've identified that would make it unsafe. As long as you've kept it below 40F (4.5C) you are good. Covering is not a critical issue for safety, temperature is.
