I recently saw a note that looked like a whole note colored in. What kind of note is that?

I would say that's a misprint. Maybe someone forgot the stem on a quarter note?

The longest musical note still currently in use is the breve, an 8 beat note. This was used mainly in Medieval music, but now is infrequently encountered. The longest musical note known to mankind was the longa, which lasts twice as long as a breve (16 beats), which is 4 times as long as the generally accepted longest musical note, the semi-breve. However, the longa is no longer used in musical notation

a breve looks like a whole note with two lines on either side

the longa looks like this im not sure how to explain it

More than likely it was a 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 note etc. missing its stem.
