▪ Shouldn't the first sentence be like this? "It Wouldn't be embarrassing to fail if you didn't try, right?"

The sentence is correct as is. In the original sentence, "didn't try" is not unreal but real past. Therefore,

- It isn't embarrassinng to fail if you didn't try

means:

- If you fail, you don't feel embarrassed if you didn't actually try.

The sentence you propose is hypothetical.

▪ Could anyone please explain what she meant by these lines "And for the record, I was barely even trying at that. Basically not trying at all."

With this, the protagonist of the comic is confirming that she didn't even make the slighest attempt or effort: she didn't try, she didn't fail, and there's no reason to feel embarrassed.
