1st Lager yeast pitch question

Let’s say I did pitch last night when the temp was in the 78 degree range?I found this morning my airlock had been suctioned out due to the temp changes going on with the wort cooling. It finally hit 55 degrees this afternoon but zero activity in the airlock.Did I underpitch too much? 1 vial of WL Pilsner Yeast for a 5 gallon batch with a OG of 1.049? Do I need to pitch another vial if I don’t see activity soon?I’ll be honest and say I didn’t realize I needed way more cells for a lager than an ale and being the low-ish gravity of the beer just skipped the starter and was going to do a direct pitch.
