the faucet is a single handle, directly below it is a button which directs the water to the shower head. When I push it the shower turns on but alot of water still pours out of the spout.

You need to replace the "diverter" ... cost is about $20 ... simple repair, just unscrew the old one with an adjustable wrench, clean out the hole, screw in the new one.

Here's what it looks like:
