    Yes. I assume this is a text, e-mail, or phone mail message.

    If you were directly speaking the sentence to him/her, you would not have to say 'call me now'.

    Not a teacher.

    Please don't forget the rules of written English, even when you're writing in a hurry.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
