i dropped it about three days ago.

The last thing that you can do try is to perform a factory reset and see if the issue is fixed after the reset to see if it is a software glitch. If the issue is not fixed then it has hardware failure and would need a repair.
The drop could have caused an internal damage to the phone even though it did not show up initially but 3 days later.
To perform the factory reset:
Power off the phone
Press and hold VOLUME UP and HOME (center) button
Press Power until the phone vibrates
Wait until see you the Android logo then release all buttons
Select Wipe data/factory reset with VOLUME DOWN then press Power to select
Select Yes -- delete all user data with VOLUME DOWN and press Power to select
