That's normal. Simple sugars ferment quickly. However, be patient. Even though it might finish fermenting, cider gets much better with time.

What he said

Give it about a month in primary. I chose not to do a secondary with this but i keg so anything that settles out while i am conditioning comes out in the first first seconds of pouring from the tap.

Since you are bottling moving to a secondary for two weeks or so would reduce sediment in the bottles. If you can cold crash that secondary before bottling that would be even better and give you clarity like what is in the picture i posted.

Either way you already have cider and it will be just fine

I understand that you kegged this at 20 psi, what did you use as serving pressure, new to kegging just wondering if I can serve this at the same pressure as my beer.

I did a "quick keg" at 20 psi by shaking it up for 5 minutes with pressure on. I then threw it on 12psi and served at that. You can serve lower if you want, im sure it will be fine.

Ok think something may have went wrong. I stated fermenting on 5-5 and fermenting was done in about a week or so. Its just been setting and it still isn't wanting to clear its still a dark cloudy color. What could be the reasons for this?

Don't worry, just give it more time to clear. If you want to speed up the clearing process you can cold crash it in a fridge or ice bath. You can also search up using gelatin to clear. I usually just leave mine for a month and it is clear by then
