There is no way to know how long you can drive it that way. Sooner or later you will have to back up. Have a transmission shop look at it.

If the reverse gear has metal shavings in there it will slowly eat away at the other gears so you can either drive it like it is for a few month and then by a whole new transmission or fix it now.
