Loan & Repayment

I got a short term loan, repayment within 9 months at a fixed interest rate of $a

How do I account this since currently I am only serving the fixed rate and have not started paying the principle

Just post the payment to an interest expense account. If you were paying both interest and principal, you would enter a two-line payment transaction, one to principal in the form of a loan liability account and the other to interest expense.
