Me and my girlfriend were arguing, and one thing led to another, I was being disrespectful and she slapped me, I had a cutt on my face, and I told the arresting officer that we were living together, and have been dating for around 6 months. We are both 18 years old, and this is her first offence, she is also a straight A/B student, currently still enrolled in high school, as a senior, with only 2 months left to graduate.
If she is being charged it is up to the prosecutor to drop the charges, you have no say in it. She should speak to an attorney immediately, and not discuss this matter with anyone else. If she cannot afford a private attorney the court will appoint her a public defender at her first court date.

You have no authority to drop the charges. The D.A.'s office has the sole authority to charge, modify, or dismiss charges. Your girlfriend's attorney could certainly negotiate a deal that avoids a plea to domestic violence charges. Do not post anything else about the facts of the case on a public forum, save it for her attorney.
