I'm a 24yo male. I noticed that my hair started thinning on top, which I now see my scalp. What are things I could try?

I strongly recommend that individuals with hair loss seek professional advice from a physician knowledgable about hair loss in order to come up with a short term and long term plan.
At age 24, hair transplant surgery is not a good option (especially if the so called medical options have not been explored first).
Medical options for male pattern hair loss include:
1. minoxidil (topcial)
2. finasteride (pills)
3. low level laser
4. platelet rich plasma
Be sure to speak to your physician about these options.

on the assumption that it is make pattern hair loss,then it sounds like your priority should be maintainence at this time
Regaine, Propecia and low level light or laser are the treatments that have published scientific backing. However you will need to keep the treatments going to maintain results. Your goal should be to stop further loss. Once that is achieved then you can look at restoration if you are suitable
