i am really confused rite now!
i was suppose to join junior residency in a hospital but somewhow i missed my date for the application.i wanted to join the residency so that i dont have ne gaps in my cv.

It depends on your situation if you are applying just within short interval of your leaving a residency it can be compensated as for your preparation time.
But it depends like someone can match with large gap in cv and someone cant with double 99 and no gaps.USMLE is an unpredictable game which has its twist .Your plan is perfectly balanced may be you can try somewhere else for a residency spot but dont waste too much time for it

As per your prep you have completed the bulk part of your subjects and its being to be a swift ride for you now onwards.So dont worry.

All the best

A gap is considered in a different way in your CV.Like if you are out of clinical practice for long time then its a drawback on your application.So its better to keep on having few clinical experience on your side so that it fills up your gap.
But shorter gaps are not the cases to be worried for as a PD will consider that you were preparing for the exams and its understandable.
It depends on you.
you can opt for residency whenever you are comfortable
