This series has the trackpad cable reaching over the battery Vs clamped between the upper case and the battery sobattery. So luckily it can be replaced quite easily. I would start there as a good bump onto the bottom cover can damage it.

I would also do a good inspection of the trackpad as any spilled liquid can corrode the ribbon cable connections. Remember the keyboards connection is relayed by the trackpad and then on to the logic board. If you see any damage you'll also need to replace the trackpad.
 
Review this IFIXIT guide: [guide|45138|MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Early 2015 Trackpad Replacement]. Make sure you first disconnect the battery then you can jump to Step7 to remove the cover and disconnect the cable as shown in Step17 thru Step20.
