I accidentally swung a wire into the screen and it created some dead pixels and it started out as 3 or so now it's like 20. At first I touched it and it increased to like 10 but now its getting worse and its creating lines I don't know what's going on with it, I haven't touched it since it happened a few days ago. I just need to know. Is there no nope, do I need to buy a new screen?

I would say you probably will need to buy a new monitor. Seeing as it is physical damage.

the main concern is that it's a somewhat expensive laptop and I don't have the skill to replace the screen (if purchased online), but thanks.

I'm sure you might be able to find a guide online to replace the screen yourself. However you could always take it to a local computer shop for them to replace it. If you buy the screen they will put it on for you and obviously charge you for labor.
