Headphones plugged in but sound still comes from speakers

Okay, so the thing is I have a Samsung J2 Prime, and today, after I pulled my phone out of my backpack (with my headphones connected), the music started playing out of the speakers. This is a huge issue for me since I ride on the bus for a long time everyday and having my music blasting out of my phone is quite embarrassing. I have already tried other headphones, I also tried to clean the port with a toothpick (like I've read elsewhere) but it still doesn't work.

My guess here is that the port is damaged, but the amount of money it would take to fix it worries me. I don't even know if it CAN be fixed. I've only had this phone for about 5 months, so it must've been something I did??? Please help me.
