Default Stuck MDK build with root

I did my phone back to stock MDK and after rooting I installed CWM recovery and tried to make a backup before i flash a new rom and it appears my CWM recovery didn't install correctly as it comes up with a droid guy laying down with a red triangle saying error. I tried flashing a zip file of TWRP and the CWM remains even after i run script over it. Any ideas how to fix this? Any help appreciated

Stock MDK build rooted
The first thing I would do is download a root check app and if it says that I have root download goo manager and install twrp via that it makes it clean and simple

Did that I have root but i installed CWM instead and it messed up when installing it and I can't get it to take TWRP. I have even tried flashing a zip of it. I have goomanager and installed script still goes to CWM guy on recovery with him laying down with a red triangle that says error
