I have purchased a domain from Google Domains and pointed it to my digitalocean servers. When i whois on PuTTY the registar is GoDaddy. the name servers are under ns#.mediatemple.net. I would understand if this was the old dns servers before i purchased the domain, but after a week to allow propagation, the problem persists

I guess from what you have said, the issue is with the registrar (Google) and not DigitalOcean. They have not saved your new name servers correctly for whatever reason.

If you use the Linux dig command you can easily do a DNS query without cache which is always good for checking progress
