I am new to Agile and scrum and want to ask few things.

Suppose I havetwo user stories 1, 2

Suppose I finished story 1 in sprint 1 but while doing sprint 2 I did something which breaks something so that my things in user story 1 broken and I need to spend more time on that again.

What do I need to do for that case?

1. You knew you needed to modify Story 1 as part of implementing Story 2. No problem. Add tasks (under Story 2) as needed to do that work, and consider it part of the Story 2 scope.

2. You accidentally broke Story 1 during Story 2 works. Stuff happens. File it as a bug and follow through as you would any other bug.
