Hello, as the upper area is completely broken i would suggest to buy the full set which includes the front camera and the small parts there: iPhone 5s LCD Screen and Digitizer Full Assembly

You could also buy just the screen for a little less money, and transfer the stuff to your new screen.

I agree with this answer.

OP could probably get away with just replacing the screen but the front camera lens may be scratched

the link Xacobe Cimadevila is 50$ ut i find some much cheaper like 20-30$ on ebay for example. Is there a difference in which I buy, i don't want some cheap knock off I decide to repair this which i am confident I can do on my own, but I have also gotten feed back that its not worth fixing and yes apparently it is a 5s not a 5c I apologize for that misinformation...but if its not worth fixing then ill just junk it, otherwise the 20-30$ display assembly is ok to get compared to the 50$ one?

If you are searching in eBay just find a provider with nice feedbacks, you can find the screen at half the price you will buy it in this website and should be a nice quality screen. If it's worth to fix it or not is up to you, as another person told you, it's not supported by Apple anymore, but you can extend a bit more its lifetime.

The display assembly is about $20-40USD.

Front camera is about $5

Here is the repair guide.

Since the display currently doesn't work on your phone, I don't know if there are any other hidden costs besides a possible front camera.
