    No, don’t reinstall Windows 10, don’t reset PC, it can’t nothing but bring more issue.
    Since BitLocker has been enabled, the first thing is asking for the password from your genius Grandkid, if BitLocker encryption process still running, let it complete, if encrypting process is interrupted, data and disk must be damaged.
    BitLocker can only encryption disks, so it easy to find where has been encrypted, this point doesn’t need to be worried. If your USB drive has been encrypted, you need password or recovery key to decrypt or unlock it, password can only be gotten by your genius Grandkid, recovery key can be saved in Microsoft account or another partition, you need to consult your Grandkid.
    Good luck!
