Default 4 months reverting help!

So gunner is 4 months old now and hasn't had an accident in the house in about 3 weeks. I understand with potty training that there will be occasional accidents and that's perfectly normal. But for the last 3 days while in the house he is acting really nervous around me and will pee just a little bit. Even when we are training in the house like sit and stay once I go to reward him he will pee. Also he will NOT come when I call him to get out of his crate only at the front door from a stay will he come in the house. Then he will usually dart right into his crate. When outside is follows all commands and will not pee at all (unless he is relieving himself) I guess I really would like to know how I should react when he pees inside from being nervous because the last thing I wanna do is give a stern NO and make him pee more. He seems to be going backwards in his progress that he was making so well over the past 2 months. Any info or advise will help thank you!

And I know that he is very young and I shouldn't be expecting something unrealistic from him, but like I said for the last 3 weeks he has been doing so well.

It sounds like you have a submissive peer on your hands. This has nothing to do with potty training and he can't help it. It's a fear thing and it's something in the dog. All you can do is try to manage this by not looking him in the eyes, letting him come to you for petting and not looking at him when you do, don't grab him by the collar, and learn his other triggers so you can either avoid them or do them outside where it doesn't matter. There's still a chance that he might grow out of this, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Do a search here for submissive peeing and you will find a lot of threads on it.
