GPU Usage low

I have been playing with my pc for a few weeks now, everything was working great and now my gpu usage is low and cpu usage high. I would get 99% gpu usage and around 13% cpu usage while gaming even on low settings. I wanted higher and stable framerate. Now since my internet took a dump last night with the outage I get 50-60% gpu usage with low settings and now my cpu usage is always around 50% while running the adrenaline metrics overlay. When I open task manager I see the 50% but can't make out whats causing it as it quickly drops down to about 3-13%. I have updated all drivers, made sure my bios was up to date, updated windows. Haven't downloaded anything new and the only thing was the internet outage or surge that happened.
