Got a few drops of water on my keyboard

I was watching a show on my MacBook Air whilst cleaning up in the bathroom, and managed to get a few droplets of water on the keyboard and trackpad. I wiped them away immediately, but a tiny bit managed to get into the cracks. The trackpad starting acting funny, and I got nervous, so I closed my laptop and left it alone for a while. I would've shut it down completely, but as I said, the trackpad wasn't working. I come back to check on my laptop, and now it's not turning on. On top of that, I connected the charger to see if it would do anything, and anytime I press and hold the power button, as soon as I let go, the charger shows that it's fully charged, then goes back to red immediately after. What's going on?

Sounds like you may have shorted out the keyboard. The replacement keyboards can be found on eBay. Just make sure to correctly identify your machine before buying one.
