If the flower was pollinated before the bug ate it, the watermelon will grow. If not, there's nothing you can do.

The bug ate the watermelon piece. (Other side)
What can I do to protect others in the future?

In that case, that watermelon is toast. Figure out what's eating your little fruits and flowers and treat for that. If you don't know, take some photos of the (bugs?). If the baby watermelon was above the ground when it was eaten, you may be dealing with birds or rabbits.
