    Go to settings, then Messages, the scroll down to Send and Receive, make sure your phone number appears instead of your email. If your email is there, click on it and on the next screen check off your phone number and uncheck email.

    Loading music your iPhone did not cause the iMessage app from sending & receiving messages via your phone number. You made a change in the settings, probably inadvertently. Anyway, do what has already been suggested and then you should be fine.

    Log out of iMessage with your Apple ID, disable iMessage, restart your iPhone, enable iMessage and then log in with your Apple ID in iMessage.
