ok so i changed the front (didn't have the right pad for the rear) and now the pedal sinks to the floor, drove it for 7 miles is still doing this, when i changed the brakes i had the cap on the brake fluid resvoir, and i also noticed on one of calipers the brake caliper was pulling back from the guide pins, should i bleed my brakes, how do i get the brake caliper to set closer to the bracket, any tips, because i wil try bleeding tommorow and if that doesn't work i am gonna pray because i won't know what to do,

p.s. got some links for the rear brakes with the little pads

That's exactly it. One person pumps the brakes, and one person opens the screw, and makes sure the reservoir stays above the minimum. (So no air gets back into the lines.) Do NOT drive your car like it is now, that's really very very dangerous.
