It doesn't appear to have a shattered screen. If I had to guess, I'd say one of the connectors is loose and needs to be reseated (but again, just a guess).

If it were mine, I'd pop the screen off and have a look at all of the connectors. Instructions are available here:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I'll second cwa107's hunch..it looks like a cable coming loose a bit. Reseating it might fix it..

Ok so i have taken it apart and checked all cables. The cable in the picture is the LCD cable i think and it looks bent, could this be the issue? Or is it the actual LCD screen?

I saw a test online and it looks like you will need to get a new LCD if reseating the cable didnt work.
