So you have this negative amount because of an accidental payment?
Probably the best thing I can suggest is to add a payment for the
negative amount with a source of 'reversing erroneous payment'

If your books are closed for the payment date, do it at your first
unclosed date.  If your books are still open, post it as that payment
