Default [Q] Moto g Rooting messed up

I am total novice in these things. I tried to root device after unlocking boot loader.

But as in process , I saw strange stripes and black screen so I pressed per button to reboot.

After it booted , it was like normal and I didn't see any super user app or any android update , and various apps are telling me that I m not rooted.
Also phone has become so slow (internet) that 1mb app took 10 minutes. Can I root it again ? (Boot loader shows phone unlocked) can phone get bricked if I repeat process again ? And why am I nor rooted?

Unlocking a bootloader in itself won't give you root rather it just allows for root.
To my understanding with the moto g you need to now flash a custom recovery and then either a prerooted ROM or superuser from new recovery
