It's fine, your car's rolling back because the transmission is not engaged. Just don't hit anything/anyone behind you as you're rolling back. Once you get back on the gas the clutch engages.

This is just like continuously feathering the clutch on a MT. If you do this consistently, I'd bet the clutch wears out faster than normal.
