Help, I planted some watermelon seeds and they have grown so well. Sadly there 13 plants that are so close together in the same pot, I now to worried if I move and replant them they will die. What should I do!

Take the time to read how to grow things, like how far between plants, between rows, then plant seeds/seedlings accordingly. There is a reason for that, it gives the plant enough soil area to draw the nutrients to grow. The best time to transplant is when the plant is at about the 4-6 new leaf stage or in some cases about 4-6 weeks after germination. The longer you leave it the bigger the transplant shock or death. You be the judge.
