First we need to be clear on the semantics. Do you mean the 2nd largest sprocket, or the 2nd to top gear (or 2nd smallest).

Also does it overshift on one click, then stay one click off the rest of the way, or does is not shift on one click, then go back to "normal" with a 2nd click slipping what should have been the firs shift?

It may not be a cable problem but more of a problem with the rear derailleur hanger . Have the hanger check or replace if it replaceable one .

its the 2nd largest, it clicks all the way to the largest no problem, when I click it down it just passes right over the 2 nd largest and continues normally....this is a pretty new bike....it started shifting a bit funny i thought maybe the cable was stretching a bit so followed a tutorial on adjusting everything...so chances are I messed somethin up

This is a video that I found to be particularly useful if you want to see how it is done. Maybe you might have missed something that this will help you catch. If the shifting is still poor I would also consider replacing your derailleur hanger as that is the only other thing that I can think of that can cause it to shift irregularly despite proper cable adjustment.

Since it is a new bike, you need to take it back to the dealer and have the mechanic explain the problem and how to fix it.
