The logical step is to re-trace what change you made and remove them, then wait a while and see if the rankings come back, if not then you have a problem.
If the site is new, then this is quite normal sites often fluctuate a lot before they settle.

"Some more on page changes..."
What changes did you make? Could be over-optimisation, but hard to comment without more info.

I just edited my title and meta tags.

That would do it. You may want to change it back to what it was.
(See the other recent discussion on title tag changes:
"Adjusted order of title tags - rankings tanked")

I would read through that carefully.
What I took away from that was:
Currently, Keyword tags are (at best) negligable.
Currently, Description may help SERPS, but DEFINATELY help (or hinder) CTR
Fiddling with Titles is BAD. Unless you are old, authorative and big. (Recovery time may be weeks to months).

No, posting URL's is against the Terms of Service.
