-still assuming upright basses are accepted here-
Okay, so I got my bass yesterday. It sounds really funny and I'm unsure if its tuned (which my tuner says its fine) or if my bow is messed up (I tightened and rosined it though). Its my first acoustic instrument and I'm worried that it might be broken already

you might be doing it wrong. I have a friend doing the violin, it took her a month to play notes without sounding like a broken frog.

then something is wrong. I'd suggest posting some pics, someone might be able to see the the problem. have you tried playing fingerstyle on it to see if it still sounds bad?
