I was driving my car and had a weird driveway I had to climb up for a job I had to reverse back down it after I was finished but there was a spot I think my car bottomed out.. I got to the bottom of the hill and had to reverse again to turn around (tiny roads) but when I did I heard a grinding noise so pulled forward and this is what fell off I don't know what it is and would appreciate some advice if it needs replaced or if it's okay to drive without it.

That's your converter heat shield. It does not need to be replaced, but don't park over tall dry grass.
Have someone look under your car to make sure the other half of the shield isn't still there waiting to cause problems. They can cut into the O2 sensor wires and blow fuses.
