I'm smart and motivated, and I want to learn graph theory so I can understand distributed swarm robot algorithms I want to implement. I haven't done calc, but this shouldn't be an issue right?

You can learn basic graph theory, sure. More advanced graph theory will require more mathematical prerequisites.

What you need to understand algorithms is not terribly much, so the answer is yes. You may need to learn some basic combinatorics ("tricky counting techniques"), but that shouldn't be too difficult.
