Yes, seems you have water that has got into the screen and maybe into the device.
 
You need to switch the iPhone off now and have it checked out. If it is just the screen, that can be replaced, but if water has got into the phone, the phone will need to be dismantled and the circuit board cleaned to remove corrosion and residue.
 
This is usually done by putting the main circuit board through an ultrasonic cleaner. Be aware there may be components on the main circuit board which have been shorted out, so this may or may not cost you more than the device is worth.
 
Certainly worth trying a new screen first though.
