is there a way to decrease the wingpanel's height? I have tried looking into /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css and /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css but i cant really find anything in there.

I used to modify the shadow of wingpanel in the older version never needed in newer version, you can look that one in apps.css.

If you want some serious modification just install below:

sudo apt-get install wingpanel-slim elementary-tweaks

once install go to System settings and look for Tweaks. That should help you.
