Custome Post Type not working how it shoudl


I have Custom Post Type and a single-services.php

Now, it displays the posts i have in Services, but it displays only the recent post that i added.

If i click on business-consulting or tax-consulting or any other , it will display me the recent post added instead of following the slug of displaying the post of tax-constuling and so on.. i have the links in the navigation bar in submenu that are linked with custom post types.

it doesn't work, how can i get the right title, image and description when doing this? So it displays the right post? not the recent one?

I have events page as well and it has the same problem.

  <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
              <article class="white-bg">

                <img class="image-thumbnail" src="<?php echo get_field( 'service_image'); ?>">

                <div class="service-content-wrapper border-rd">
                     <h1 class="text-heading"><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
                     <p class="text-muted">
                        <?php the_content(); ?>
            <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

Since the page is called single-services.php it already know that im calling it from services or somehting.. so i didn't had to have wp_query, insead i just had to have a normal loop, or i coud do it even without, but because i wanted to have the_content() i needed the loop with nothing in it and it has worked! :D

Took 2-3 days to figure this out :D
