i inserted a new pickup into the bridge and the top e string is scraping against it which is knackering the sound of it. whenever i try playing on that string it sounds sort of palm muted and gives a really poor sound. what should i do?

turn the screws on each side of the pup clockwise to raise the pickup, counter to lower it.
A time when what? I didn't know what a screw driver was? This is so painfully obvious.
