just blocked the trem on my strat with a cork. IS this okay? like will it hold or do I need to take the time to use real wood?

It needs to be pretty solid. You may be able to if you tighten the hell out of the springs.

Personally, I'd use a stack of picks taped together.

so many things to shove into holes, but yeah that would work too.

Well it's better than nothing, but it is a lot easier to compress than alternatives.
If you have 5 tight springs back there, or just leave the bar alone (of course) then it should be good.

stack/tape popsicle sticks. That's what I've had in my Ibanez for years.

It's so easy to find scrap pieces of wood, though.

A cork is fine. That's what people use on guitars with a slanted trem block. But if you have a straight trem block you should cut a chunk of wood to fit so that it resonates better. Pine is actually an excellent tone wood, so any scrap of a 2x4 will do.

I use a bottle cap. you can literally use anything. Wood is theoretically the best thing to use though, as wood in contact with the wood of the body will give you more sustain.
