AVG notified me that my anti-virus and anti-spyware was outdated, so I tried to update but this pop-up interrupts:

"Your computer system seems to be inaccurate. This may lead to false virus database up-to-dateness reporting. Please correct your system time if possible."

The update finishes and I'm not updated. I searched for this problem already but I couldn't find anything about it. Help? (I think I think I have a virus)

In the BIOS or via double clicking on the clock in the sys tray area.

Damn I thought the time was right but apparently it was set to April instead of February.... anyways, after clicking "Update Now", AVG Free still tells me that the database for anti-virus and anti-spyware is outdated. Is this a problem for me and how could I fix it?

An outdated virus database...means that you need to update the definitions installed in your AV.

If your system clock does not keep accurate date/time data...you probably need to consider replacing the CMOS battery.
