I'm currently knitting a cabled scarf and whenever I'm knitting the row after the cable row, I get this huge gap between the cables..
I have three cables going on and the gap is quite visible.. idk what i'm doing wrong o_o... if i'm not clear please ask me what needs to be explained further..

You're not doing anything wrong, that's normal with cables. Do a few more rows and you'll see the holes aren't quite so apparent. They'll even out some when you wash or block the scarf when you're done. Don't try to pull your yarn tight as you knit them, that'll make it worse and it can actually work better to knit looser or on larger needles.

That will just happen. And it will depend on how you looking at the piece as well. I'm working on a Honeycomb cabled scarf for my mother right now and if you look at it from one side you can't see a single hole, if you look at it from the opposite side there is a hole at every single cable. So I think this is just the nature of cables.
