Should I retake the LSAT? What's the worst that could happen?

Took the LSAT yesterday and don't think I did well. I was practice testing at 170+ and really think I have the "answering-the-questions" part of the test down, but didn't perform 100% on the "test-taking" aspects like time mgmt/test flow/etc. for a variety of reasons (2 hrs sleep, noisy/distracting test site being the two main ones). I can't say for sure I completely bombed it, but it definitely didn't "feel" like a 169+ test. More like below 165.
It seems that recently a lot of schools have switched from averaging multiple LSAT scores to "considering all scores but using the highest." Is this a gimme to take it over no harm no foul or am I missing something? Do I need to cancel my current score if I want to retake or can I let it ride out of morbid curiosity? I guess this is a somewhat recent change on the schools parts so I'm getting a lot of contradictory information.
Oh, and bonus points for where to report test center complaints. I can't seem to find it on the LSAC website.
