This is my third brew. My first came out excellent. Question is, I never really noticed much bubbling in the airlock this time but measured the final gravity 3 days later and got a reading of 1.01 which is about where it is supposed to be. Does this mean that it fermented?

Has the krausen fallen?

Assuming that the OG was not also about 1.01, yes - it does mean that it has fermented.
I guess you are using a bucket to ferment in. You only need a slight leak in the seal between the rim and the lid to almost stop the airlock activity, but this won't hurt the beer at all as the CO2 will escape from the leak, and the nasties won't get in.

Yeah, and there is trub all around the side of the bucket about two inches above the water lever.

is the sign of a fallen krausen.
