Hello all..
i am not an electrician BUT I know how to replace outlets and whatnot, pretty handy.

Anyways I can’t figure those out.
When I bought my townhouse, I replaced outlets in the kitchen. Took the old ones to homedepot to get new ones.

2 out of the 4 are not working
The 2 are on one wall on each side of the sink.
Left side GFCI with a switch for the disposal. On the other side, regular outlet.
GFCI has 2 red wires, 2 grey and neutral
Switch has 2 orange
The other outlet 1 red and 1 grey (coming from the GFCI/switch area (what appears)

Switch/disposal works, both outlets don’t. When I plug (test with Christmas lights) into the other outlet, a red light appear on the other GFCI. When I unplug the lights, the red light goes away.
i checked my wires and I’m pretty sure I have them in the right spots (hot/neutral). Unless I’m wrong. I’ll try to add pictures

Any help would be amazing!
thanks
