No, especially in English lit where the analysis you can make is likely limited anyway. Whats to say you didn't come up with the same analysis as someone else when you're studying the same text in the same context of GCSEs. I can definitely say that for my GCSEs in English me and my friends would just gather as much analysis of the internet as possible and memorise it!

No, at GCSE, anything which you write in English Literature will not be considered plagiarised (even if you just wrote down a model answer for a question exactly word for word). I think taking analysis from Quizlets and other websites rather than very popular revision guides is a good idea as the only thing which the examiner may mark you down for is originality (i.e. if you come up with a point that they have only seen a few times rather than one they have seen at least 100 times each year, they will mark you more highly).

Phew!!! This relieved me soooo much!! Because I watched some grade 9 analysis videos for English literature and I used some of the analysis for certain quotes in my English literature exam and two weeks after I realised that it could be plagiarism. I’m soo relieved now

If this was an official GCSE examination, then I don't see how you'd get into trouble for plagiarism.
Most people can't remember everything word for word, so you most likely made the description you wrote in the exam as original as possible.
It's practically impossible to 'plagiarise' in a closed book GCSE or A level exam... Unless you somehow managed to sneak in unauthorised material, and without getting caught by the invigilators managed to copy what was on that unauthorised material word for word.
I wouldn't worry about it at all, enjoy your summer and relax.
