I went and looked at your client. They have only given 5 stars to one of an entire 27 freelancers that they have worked with. Apparently they are just a terrible client that should be completely avoided. Dont feel bad, it isnt just you.
0 actually. The highest was a 4.8

Thanks for your advice, I will definitely be more selective. if i choose to return all the money ($ 12), will this affect me even more than the feedback?
You've received a lot of good advice. Don't return the money even if your score improves a bit. It's not worth it. You gave your time and that's worth something. Plus, you are setting a bad example when this client works with future freelancers. They will target the newbies and try to get more out of them for pennies.
Definitely seek out work with higher pay. Next time manage expectations upfront (ex: set a # of revisions, outline the scope of work). If the client asks for something beyond what has been agreed to, respond with "I would love to do X for you. It will cost another $Y".
