Slow drip in shower - an easy fix?


I have an old shower that I'm going to be re-grouting, but before I do that I need to fix a slow drip from the shower head. The drip slows when I turn the cold handle slightly on, so I'm hoping this is an issue that can potentially be resolved with some adjustment to the handle. I have easy access to the back of the shower knobs through an access panel in a closet behind the shower (seen below).



I'm a plumbing novice, so any help is appreciated with this. Thanks!
