I seem to have disabled the ~ (tilde) on a Touchbar MacBook Pro?

I have the original US keyboard setting and have not changed any settings. Somehow I seemed to have pressed the wrong combinations of keys that resulted in the ~ (tilde) character being disabled. If you are wondering how the hell i am typing it well i am just copy pasting it!

My girlfriend has the same computer and it works just fine and we have the same settings….any ideas?
