Take the handle the trim off, tighten the first brass nut up, this is the packing nut, before you reinstall the handle and trim, test to see it was fixed.

When I took the knob off, I didn't see any nuts. There is nothing for me to tighten

There will be a nut to tighten since you have atleast a 2 handle valve... it can be hidden under the trim piece and in many cases it is back in the wall and requires a socket of sorts to get back to it...
