What's wrong with my iPhone?

I recently spilled a Dunkachino on it (coffee and hot chocolate) but it looked like it was only a little bit on the case so I wiped it off and it worked fine. Then, it was dropped and beat up a little bit. A couple hours later when I was in an app the app closed and the apps wouldn't open, then the screen just went black and nothing was responding. Siri worked the first time but not anymore, and it sometimes makes a noise when I plug it in to charge but only if I hold the lock button. I stuck it in rice over night but that didn't work and I tried charging it but it was at 50% when it died and so that didn't turn it on.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try rebooting your iPhone first: press and hold (Power Button + Home Button) together for ~10 seconds. If the iPhone does not restart, click then on the Power Button to re-start it.

If this doesn't help, you can try to restore the iPhone by connecting to iTunes. But all the data will be wiped, and in case the restore is not successful, it could be harder to fix.

Finally, whether the above works or not, it would be a good idea to open you iPhone using this guide, clean any liquid residue using a soft toothbrush and 90%+ isopropyl alcohol, dry, re-assemble and test.

EDIT: in case you do see traces of liquid inside the phone, you will need to have it professionally cleaned. Normally this involves removing the logic board from the phone, the shields off from the logic board, cleaning the board in a pro ultrasonic cleaner, rinsing, drying, testing, and fixing anything that seems damaged still.

Very IMPORTANT: make sure not to mix up your screws. Each must go back to its exact position.

Are the lines grey or yellow going down the screen? Also it's not really responding when you touch? If the answer is yes to the questions it's a simplex fix your phones LCD screen ribbon are not properly plugged in you need to open the phone and press down on the LCD plug till you hear it snap back into place. If you never repaired a phone let someone do it for you just tell them your LCD screen plug is lose
