I'd plug it into iTunes immediately and do a restore. Welcome to the forum BTW.

if I do that would it delete my music and photos?
Yes - but if they're all synched and backed-up on your iTunes you'll get it all back again as it was.

You could try turning the phone off and back on again if you haven't already, but it's worth going back to known software just in case you've had some malware introduced by SMS (I have read of such a thing being theoretically possible)

One question, is your phone jailbroken or stock? There is an after market program out now that allows you to delete individual text messages without going into the sms program itself. It might be possible for you to delete the corrupt text without having to restore. If you are on a stock phone then restoring is probably your best bet.
