I'm using Mist wallet, and the local geth node is about several thousand blocks behind the head, can I make transactions in this case?

I'm asking because I did send a transaction and it wasn't confirmed for over 12 hours. Is it because I can't send transactions before the node is fully synced up, or because the fee is too low and no miners want to include it?

I used the default value in the fee slider at then, it was about 0.006 ETH, I thought that was enough.

I'm not sure is it even propagated to the network and how can I check this?
