Brake Levers Formula RX

Front brake pads are rubbing on the disc . And lever is a very firm, very little travel.

i think at one point when wheel was off i squeezed the lever

What can i do to fix this problem?

I tried open the pads with screw driver but still get same problem.

do i need to bleed the brake lines? or is there any other screw i can turn or anything to fine adjust the pads etc

if i have to bleed how do i bleed the line and is it simple?
