A yellow dye test showed I have a dry patch on the center of my cornea. Is this because I wear contacts?

In brief: Yes, over wear

of contacts can cause corneal irritation and break down of the top layer of the cornea.
This should be monitored closely until it heals to make sure you don't develop an infection. Stay out of contacts until your eye doctor clears you. Good luck.
