What to do if my house was raided and drugs were found but I was not arrested because the police want me to give up the person who I got them from?

If I don’t do it, can they still arrest me on those charges even if it was 4 days ago? Also, I did not see a search warrant.

You have a bunch of consitutional issues you have raised - the search warrant - and you have some very real issues with the charges and arrest.  Yes, they can probably still charge you but they are trying to turn you and make a deal.  You should only make a deal with the advice of an attorney so I would suggest that you speak with some one asap about this all and before it goes any further.
