    My friend asks me were you earlier.

    Can you say:

    I just went to the gym

    VS

    I was just at the gym

    What's the difference here?

    Note my corrections above. Given that the question uses the word "earlier", I wouldn't use "just" in the reply (if you were using it to mean "a short time ago" rather than "only"). I would say "I was at the gym" - that's the most natural response to that simple question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
