I just checked and the gapps I have now is "pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4.2-20131215-signed" Do you think I should just install it again? And Google chrome is starting to not work. It takes a while for the keyboard to come up and when I search something it just crashes. This isn't all the time though only sometimes.

PA gapps should be fine but you may want to Browser the CM11 thread I posted before for potential issues with them. The chrome and keyboard issues you mention match your previous post (eg. error reported by the chromium component).
I'd reboot to recovery, do a nandroid backup (just to be safe), then clear the cache and dalvik cache, then erase the system partition, then flash CM and the gapps again.
Erasing the System partition should get you rid of unwanted stuff and the steps above should not touch your data.

I did this 3 days ago and it seems better. Thanks!! Chrome works now but apps still crash. It seems to happen less now but it still happens.
