Icon5 Starter spark

So I was changing my oil and I went to change the oil filter but the starter wire is in the way, so I went to disconnect it but forgot to take the battery off. So when I had the ratchet on the bolt and came down with it, it tapped the starter and mad a little bit of a spark. And because of that, the truck wont start now. Nothing was wrong before. Any ideas? (btw im trying to see if its something electrical before I try and take the starter off and have it tested because one of the starter bolts is stripped)
