hello,
got this from a light novel, (「しまった!」 とか「ばれた!」 みたいな 後ろ暗さは全然見受けられない。)
i under stand most of it, checked with translation: (she didn't seem to be secretly cursing, "Damn it!" or "I'm caught!". ) but i cant find the word "cursing"

Like 'Dammit,' 「しまった」 is used when something goes unexpectedly wrong. It's not really a cuss word, but depending on the context 'dammit' may be an appropriate translation.
