Could it be my fuel pump or is my carb just bad?

Yesterday I ran out of gas, after refueling I tried to start back up and it would not stay running once in drive or reverse. Im wondering if some gunk from the tank might have clogged up the pump? I know my fuel filter had turned orange not to long ago so I tried replacing with a new one. Still the same problem. Also my idle stays running high. Here is also a picture of my carb. It seems like something is not right. Also is it normal to be able to shift without pressing the brake I have never noticed before. Please if anyone has an idea that would help a lot.
