Brake Bleed Screw Up

I literally screwed up. I have never bled brakes before so I figured I would give it a try. I couldn't get the bleed screw off easily so I applied more force and snapped the screw...... half still in the calliper housing.

The brakes are shimano deore lx. The brakes were already giving my trouble with a sticky calliper and I popped the other calliper part way so some fluid came out when trying to fix the stuck calliper. This was the reason behind the bleed.

Complete rookie mistakes. What are my options. Replace the calliper?
