Screen keeps flickering after falling in water

So my phone fell in the swimming pool and I removed the case and SIM card and shook out any extra water. Put the phone in bowl of rice, but now I'm worried because the screen kept flickering, I didn't turn it off or anything..

Will it be okay? Is there anything more I should have done?
