This is very common. Usually the door drops. First tighten the upper hinges and see if that pulls it up. If not you may have to put a shim on the lower hinge to push it out. When doing that I would start with an 1/8" shim and try it with the screws out and see if it is enough. If not add another one until it gets aligned.
