Question regarding validity of Protestant Baptism...

Go to a traditional priest (not a Novus Ordo priest).  You can always be conditionally baptized if there is any doubt, which sounds as if there is plenty.

The only doubt expressed was due to the use of sprinkling.  That would not normally make a baptism invalid.  The OP did not say anything to suggest there was a problem with the baptismal formula.  Conditional baptism is not something that is done "just in case".  There has to be some serious reason to believe the baptism was invalid.
