Getting a gmail for account recovery that turned out to be a phishing link

So i got an gmail as to which when i tried to recover my other gmail account from years ago.

I obviously clicked the link to change it but for some reason it kept saying “you can’t have a blank space at the end of you’re password.

I was confuse since there wasn’t any blank space at all but then i got suspicious, copy and pasted the link to virustotal only for it to be found as phishing.

I was shook obv, and tried to clear my history, tried gmail on a new tab and tried changing my password only for it to be said “wrong password”, and now every google link i clicked and searched to virustotal it says that its a malicious link, i could’ve thought the hacker was controlling my pc or sum.

I have tried the forgot password by needing to confirm my gmail recovery on my gmail, which was my father’s phone.

It sent me a code but when i typed the code it said wrong, so i clicked resent buttun and got another code from google but it was the same code from the last time, and now im thinking that the hacker is gmailing my father.

At this point i couldn’t even unlink my phone number and recovery gmail and just deleted my gmail account, which i can still recover but im afraid.

Please help! I have posted this on r/phishing too.

I got a notification from reddit through gmail that someone commented on that reddit post, which i copied the link and pasted it to virustotal only for it to be also read as a phishing link?
