When i bought it, the previous owner laid it down on the right side at very low speeds and now when i ride and presss on the from brakes hard, i notice a loose thudding from the right side handle...

is this because the handle was cracked when it was dropped or is it because I need to tighten the stem?

What is the solution thank you!!!

Could be loose or could be cracked/broken. Can you tell which? We can't see it from here. :)

first make sure the bolts holding the handlebar on aren't loose

Exactly. Can you move the bar end around with the bike stationary? If so, you should be able to tell where it's moving. Loose/broken bolts or mount will cause it to move where it's mounted. Broken or cracked bar end will move around at the break.
