I'd say you need to pop the wheel off, then the drum, and down low, center, is a star adjuster. Pull the lil lever to the side and turn the adjuster so it is as small as possible (compressed in). Your brakes will self adjust over the course of a few days if you don't know how to adjust them with the drums on.
Be forwarned, if you don't know the condition of the brakes be prepared, drums have so much dust and heat they usually are a total mess, i. e. The star adjuster is seized, springs are brittle or broken, etc. You can pull the drum off to look but if you don't know drums I wouldn't go poking around to much other than to try to adjust the star adjuster back down.
