If I make a shehakol bracha and then discover that the correct bracha for the food I am eating is, say, mezonot, should I now make a new mezonot bracha on the remainder of the food? Or does the initial shehakol cover it?

You should not recite a new blessing; the initial shehakol covers it (based on the Mishna on B'rachos 40a; Shulchan Aruch OC 206:1). If you recall immediately that you concluded the blessing incorrectly, you may correct the conclusion of the blessing toch k'dei dibbur (within approximately 2 seconds).
