I'm new at widescreen and at 4k is there a way so there isn't a blackbar, like auto fix aspect ratio or something?

Are the black bars at the top/bottom or the sides?

If you viewing older anime that was originally in 4:3 format, no. Even if there was, you shouldn't want to, as the only ways to fill the screen are to stretch the material horizontally (distorting the image), or cropping material off the top and bottom.

For newer anime, you shouldn't be seeing black bars unless your monitor is a wider aspect ratio the typical 16:9. If you do have a wider monitor (such as a 2560 x 1080 model), then the same issues as above apply.

Then you'll have black bars on the sides of any anime series at CR. You might have a chance of one of the few movies being in a wider aspect ratio (assuming they aren't presented with a hard matte), but that would be about it.

As I noted, the only way to change the aspect ratio of existing material is to distort it by stretching the video horizontally (say hello to characters that look "fat" and circles that look like ovals), or cut material off at the top and bottom.
