Welcome and congratulations. One issues that has cropped up lately is brake lever cut out switches associated with loss of power from the mis-adjusted set screw for the switch. Just be aware that it could need adjusting in the future if you experience this anomaly.

Be sure to add pictures of your adventures to our Gallery.

When I stop peddling the engine slows me down, is that part of the issue you mentioned above or is that normal?

No, the brake cut out anomaly will not allow delivery of power to the Motor with either Pedal Assist or Throttle.  The electric Motor has a cassette which free wheels when power is not being applied and the bike coasts. But the rear wheel is quite heavy compared to a non powered bike and that extra mass resists rotational forces.  Can you turn your pedals freely backwards?

Make sure your chain is properly adjusted and lubricated (only with a product made for bike chain lubrication) and not causing tension or binding on the cassette, 1/4" sag in the chain. With the chain disengaged from the cassette, it should freely rotate backwards and you should hear the pawls clicking inside the cassette.
