Please post a screenshot with the Layers panel expanded and visible. Could you explain step by step how you reached your current state? What did you use to create the selection, and so on?

That seems imprudent. 

I again recommend using a Solid Color Layer instead.

If you want smooth edges use Pen tool to trace area first then use path to create shape layer, for example. Another option is layer mask applied to color fill layer as sugested by @c.pfaffenbichler

Naturally one need not maintain such a Layer permanently and can ultimately merge it; but as long as the Selection is unsatisfactory (or the color might be subject to change) it is easier to use it as a Layer Mask and edit that than to fill the pixel Layer and try to amend the damage there.

I recommend you don’t apply a Fill but create a Solid Color Layer. 

Then you can edit the Layer Mask however you deem necessary (with Filters, Adjustments, painting, … for example).
