I checked my floating thermometer and it was at 20 deg C and so at the lower limit of the yeast. I stirred it up and recaped it tight and so we'll see what happens.

6 days later and no change to the hydrometer. Going to check where it reads in water to see if it's off for some reason. How should I proceed? It seems like I'm not going to get that hydrometer to move. Should I wait a bit longer to settle some more of the stirred up yeast? I can't tell if it's more or less cloudy than before I stirred it. 6 days is probably enough time to settle whatever is going to settle?

Went to the brew store, guy gave me yeast nutrients and some more yeast to try and make sure all the sugars are consumed and also to make sure there are active yeast when I go to bottle prime. Also going to pop another hydrometer in there to make sure mines not off.
