Car came locked to a flashpro

When I bought my car it came locked to a flashpro already and I was wondering if I can just buy a new one or if I'm screwed

You should be fine. A Flashpro locked to an ECU means the Flashpro is not usable on another car. When you get a Flashpro, it will store the file that is in your ECU as the base file from that car. So, essentially you won't have a stock tune from your car to revert to for smog or something like that. Something like the stock tuned file would be fine if needed.
