ok this is my mom's car and she said for 3 days she needed oil in her car but didn't have the money. and payday was 4 days away. after she put oil in it, it started to tick on drivers side part of the engine. my guess she damaged something in the engine cause it doesn't have it's normal power.

Very possible. Could be a stuck lifter, damaged lifter, valve, cam lobe. Take it in to a shop and have them pull the valve cover and inspect it before it gets worse.
