Can you share the TX ID? It might just need a little push, there might also be other issues, e.g. with priority, number of inputs or the size of the output(s).

If it really took 3 days i think that by today
Or max tomorrow the funds will be sent back to you.
If you don't mind please share the tx id with use to see more in detail.

I see the transaction is indeed unconfirmed but there is a warning notice on the page (http://blockchain.info):

Confirmation Warnings
This transaction has an output less than 0.01 BTC but doesn't include a fee. This transaction has a very small output and is non standard. The transaction fee is less than recommended.

It should go through eventually or be rejected. It may have gone through normally with an .0001 fee.

Blockchain shows it as a normal transaction but it is not sent before 3 days remember this.

I think that you will get back you money if it will confirmed, anyways the blocktrail does not show(does not recognize) this transaction.

Keep core open it will confirm eventually. I just rebroadcasted it for you, might be enough even though the fee is a little low.

I see the transaction is indeed unconfirmed but there is a warning notice on the page (http://blockchain.info):

Confirmation Warnings
This transaction has an output less than 0.01 BTC but doesn't include a fee.

Which is not true, not sure how they came up with that warning.

This transaction has a very small output and is non standard.

4602 satoshi is still above current default dust limit of 2730, not sure either whats up with that warning.

The transaction fee is less than recommended.

It should go through eventually or be rejected. It may have gone through normally with an .0001 fee.

-Ondart

That one is true, the fee is low. Bitcoin core currently suggests (2 blocks till confirmation) 15142 satoshi per kbyte which would be ~5647 satoshi for this transaction.

OP is using bitcoin core, they can zap[1] the transaction from the wallet and double spend it any time they want.

[1] look for zapwallettxes -> https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Command-line_arguments

That is the default yes and maybe the most trusted one, but also there are some other bitcoin wallets.

For example Xapo and Coinbase cover the transaction fee and they pay it for you even 0.0003 if there is any attack or any stress test.

IMHO it gives you the most options. You can (assuming you created the TX):

#1 keep it open, it will rebroadcast your transaction automatically until it is confirmed
#2 decide that you rather want the network to forget about the transaction and try resending it with a higher fee. In this case start core with -zapwallettxes, wait ~12-24 hours for the rest of the network to forget and create a new TX with a higher fee. This is commonly known as a "double spend" even though its not actually one.
#3 In the future use the fee core recommends you and manipulate it with the slider if your TX does not need to confirm within the next 5-6 blocks. Make sure the client ran a while so its no longer showing the warning that it needs more data.

Most other wallets just allow you to sit around and wait.

Sure

#1 close core
#2 make sure it closed
#3 Hit Win + R to open "run"
#4 enter c:\Program Files\Bitcoin\bitcoin-qt.exe -zapwallettxes (modify path to core as needed)
#5 confirm with ok
#6 let core do its thing, it will remove all unconfirmed transactions and rescan from the local data.
#7 wait at least 12 hours before you create a new transaction to give the rest of the network time to forget about the old one.
