so recently when i play through my fender deluxe 90 amp, i started smelling like a burning plastic smell, and i felt it and my amp was really hot. This was kind of concerning to me, so i shut it off. but idk why it is heating up
can anyone help?

Something bad happened, beyond that the symptom is too vague to diagnose. You need to get somebody who knows what they are looking at to take a look inside it.

I would stop playing. Why risk a fire?

Do you normally keep using electrical devices when you smell smoke coming from them? If so, stop.
