I just installed SQL Server Express 2014 and changed default instance name to MSSQLSERVER. Is this OK ?

Do you mean you created a named instance? That's fine.

SQL Express defaults to installing as a named instance, and if you changed that to MSSQLSERVER, then it's installed itself as a named instance with that name. If you wanted to install it as a default instance (e.g. not requiring the instance name to be specified when connecting to it) then you should have changed that option in the installer.
