Okay, so there is no money in escrow. There is only one milestone for this project, which was not funded. Should I still ask them to pay me to compensate for my work? Obviously not the full price.

This is not possible - the first milestone MUST have been funded. It is not possible to create a fixed rate contract without funding the first milestone.

Did the client cancel the contract and generated a "Return of Escrow Funds" request?

Here's a screenshot for context. They did not cancel the contract. Sorry for the confusion.

There's $100 funded. You can see it says "(funded)"

ok, it is funded (money is in Escrow)

 

I would suggest you contact the client and explain that as XX% of the work is done you will be submitting for XX% of the amount as you did the work. Be polite, understanding of their issue, but firm. The client entered a legally binding contract.

 

Then wait for the the client's response, and if none is forthcoming, use the "Submit for payment" function and request the percentage you decided is fair.
