Yellowing/dying Leaves on Tomato Seedlings

This is my first time starting tomatoes from seed and everything had been going smoothly until a few days ago. It started off with a slight yellowing of the cotyledons and has then spread to the leaves with some of them wilting/dying off. A single leaf had a couple of yellow spots on it but after looking today I can no longer find it to get a picture.
From my googling I thought that this might have been because I had got a bit carried away with watering them, I let them dry out a bit over the last 2/3 days but they seem to be getting worse.
Can anyone identify what the problem is and how I can fix it?
With regards to the watering, some are looking like they could do with a bit of a drink. Should I wait a bit longer or give them a bit of water? Also I am watering from the top and hear that that can cause issues, should I invest in a gravel tray to water from the bottom?
Im a no nonsense gardener, don’t worry too much about things like that🙂
