I would have just thought that the overall assignment has to be 2000 words, if that isn't the case once you hand it in could you not write some more if they let you/want you to, I mean it wouldn't be your fault if whoever assigned this wasn't clear enough
so I just wouldn't worry if you have 2000 words already : )

usually word counts dont include references.
how many words is it without the references?
usually most unis allow 10% over/below, or just 10% just below, or something like that. havent they specified?

you need to consult your module or degree handbook because it's not the same for every class, at every uni. should be on blackboard or ask a fellow student?
