No, the deadline for contributing to your 2017 HSA was April 17, 2018 (unless you filed an extension, in which case the deadline October 15, 2018).

You will need to amend your 2017 return to remove the HSA contribution for 2017.

Whether or not an extension was filed, the deadline for making a 2017 HSA contribution was April 17, 2018, so it's far to late to change a contribution made for 2018 into a contribution made for 2017.
