If your Filter is new , then I would recommend removing everything out and drying it rather than keeping it closed.
Cause either ways you wonít have any good bacteria build in there as itís just been few days I guess, So my suggestion would be to just clean it and dry it out.

I did the same to cycle the Aquasoil in my tank as Aquasoil has a tendency to leak amonia, So i had to cycle my tank for almost a month , then drain everthing , plant HC, wait 4 weeks and then fill it up .
Again wait for couple of weeks for bacteria build and then add fish
