It likely bounced at least once and may not be oriented correctly. It is transmitting back to Rosetta and is expected to relay a panorama of where it is on the surface, but no pictures have been released as yet.

So its possible it might tumble off? I had heard that they might try the harpoons a 2nd time? I guess there is a way to wind them up and try again?

If it tumbles off, will it still transmit data? where will it go?
