Exclamation Trying to fix my dripping tap

Sorry I am not sure whether I post it in the correct place but I am so frustrated.. My kitchen tap has been dripping. So I looked up online and the tutorials said I have to find unscrew the tap or open the cap from the tap. However, I couldnt find any cap or screw to open the tap. I have attached the photos of my tap. Is there a special way to unscrew the tap or I have to remove the whole tap from the bottom in this case? Thank you for your help!!

Welcome to the forums.

I moved your thread here where it is better suited.

Is there any manufacturers name or symbol on the faucet ?

Are you located in the USA?
Look for a set screw on the back side of the hot and cold handles.
Does the rounded cap of the valves pop off? do you turn on then hot or cold water. Twist or push on the stubs?

I believe your pictures show the faucet is leaking from the base, not dripping from the spout. I would replace the faucet.

or I have to remove the whole tap from the bottom in this case?
Yes. To remove the faucet, disconnect the water supply lines and unscrew the faucet mounting hardware.
Post a picture of the underside of faucet if you need more help.

A single hole faucet is usually secured with a single nut, or a threaded plate with machine screws.
