If you had photos in iPhoto and did a full Time Machine backup, they will be there in the backup. When you get the new machine just connect the Time Machine disk and run Migration Assistant on the new machine. That will import all your photos back to the new machine.
I think your problem now is you are trying to manually open the iPhoto library while it is still on the Time Machine disk, and it is really not designed to do that.
You will be fine.
