Drivers door key unlocking/locking problem

It looks like everything wants to go bad on my car right now. Luckily no big things though.. yet.

A little bit ago I went to unlock my door by using the key in the door and the key got stuck slightly offset from up/down and I had to use a little force to remove it.
Now the drivers door locks/unlocks fine with the button in the car and on the remote still. The problem is only when using the key in the door. It unlocked the door half the time, and made the sound of unlocking it but didn't fully unlock it the other half of trys. Nothing happened when i turned the key to the right, and the key wouldn't automatically go back to being vertical so it coul be pulled out.

Any advice?
