Should i strengthen my hamstrings/glutes more to help at the bottom or work more on my stretching what is your take on it.
Before we start trying to fix this, I think it's best to look at the big picture to see if there other issues that may need to be fixed.

Do you have a video up of your squats?

There are some common squat form flaws that might be forcing your lower back to round in the hold.
