Nothing with pH below 7 ammonia is non toxic. If you want do a water change just make sure your pH does not go above 7. Keel an eye on your nitrites. They may spike after the ammonia. Prime can detoxify ammonia as well as nitrites.

I would do a water change and add prime/safe/etc. in the correct dosage (do not over dose).
