First Layers blotchy, uneven, and has dents - uneven bed?

I am having some issues with my first layers. Sometimes there are blotches, sometimes uneven lines, and this time I am getting little dents. My bed visualizer in OctoPi looks like perhaps my bed is not leveled properly anymore? Please see screenshots attached, would love some advice.

I bought the mini last year and had many many prints since then. At that point the printer didn't come as a kit and was mostly assembled. I may have had to attach the bed to the Z-axis though but I do not know why it would be causing issues now. Should I attempt to loosen it?
