So I just got my pc from college and it has a A6-7400k (Beast, i know), i downloaded CPUID HWMonitor and the cpu is 52c idle with ambient about 20c, is this okay? I want to try play cod waw zombies on it with medium settings if its even possible... and minecraft modded too (If i can even play it with 4gb ram ;( )

Download AMD overdrive to get the correct indicator.

You will get a thermal margin,

"Thermal Margin indicates how far the current operating temperature is below the maximum operating temperature of the processor." -AMD

This means the closest to zero, the hottest the cpu will be..

Thermal margin is sitting between 55-70... so its perfectly fine right now I guess.
