It's fine. I consider uploading the package to ‘mentors.debian.net’ a
release of the package, since at that point interested people (e.g.
reviewers) can rely on it, and the version should refer uniquely to what
I uploaded at that time.

Be aware, though, that some people disagree (on the grounds that it's
not a new version until it enters Debian).

So I'd say: after you've uploaded a version, keep things clear. Make a
new version in ‘debian/changelog’ when you're preparing a new upload.
