You probably need the washers at the end of the stems replaced, (you mentioned "valves", so I'm assuming it has two-handled control for hot and cold.). And it's also a good idea to replace the seats at the same time, as forcing the "drip" to quit by over tightening can "burr" the seat, and cause a new washer to start leaking again within a week! But, as far as I know the proper method is with a seat wrench.
FIRST: you must turn off the water to the house, unless you have emergency shut-off valves accessible under the escutcheons...

...Maybe just call a plumber!
