What's wrong with my bathroom faucet on the sink? Today it started to constantly drop water every 5 seconds? ?

It has 2 handles and a spout where the water falls out of.

    the valve needs to be repacked, or the washer inside it replaced, or something similar.  fine job for a handyman ... not serious enough for a plumber's high prices  -- grampa

    A washer has worn out.  Replace it.  It's easy to do.

    If you leave it too long, it'll wear out the valve seat, and that's a bit more effort.

    Whatever little bit is worn and needs to be replaced, you obviously can't do it . . . . call a handyman.

    It sounds like the faucet needs a new washer.

    Calcium sometimes builds up around washers and seals, simply remove and clean those parts.

    Ethier the washers needs to be replaced or the cartridges.
