I am fairly new to this and I am worried I just wasted 300. It just says out of sync. How do I add my bitcoin wallet to Mt. Gox?

While you can keep your funds on Mt. Gox, it is not advisable to do so, for the reasons listed here. So you would better find an e-wallet you like (I suggest, and send your funds there.

Always keep a backup, and never forget your passphrase!

Sorry to hear you accidentally 300 - we've all been there at one point or another. To answer your questions:

I sent bitcoins to a bitcoin client that hadn't fully synced - are my bitcoins lost?

How do I add my bitcoin wallet to Mt. Gox?

Click "Add Funds", choose Bitcoins

Thanks for the reply. I tried adding funds by using bitcoins, and it did not give me an option to add my bitcoin wallet. – Mark Guajardo Feb 24 '13 at 5:01
-1 while this answers the exact question asked, I think it would have been much better to explain to the OP what was he doing wrong and dissuade him (sorry) – o0'. Feb 24 '13 at 10:21
