Nice tune, but listening to it would have never have thought it a minuet, a sarabande maybe. There really is no change in meter - you have a measure of 4/4 then two of 2/4, why not keep the whole passage in 3/4? The second 2/4 bar could be held for 3 beats, a performer probably would ritard the final chord anyway.

You also have a few parallel 5th, like in the 4/4 bar. Also the ii-III-iv-ii 6/5 then i over the iv pedal does not make sense in this style

If you pay close attention to where the upbeats go, then you would agree with they way I changed the meter. The final chord in 2/4 couldn't have been sustained. You try it yourself, and it just would feel too awkward. I had to change it.

I also know that there were parallel 5th. I was going to fix it, but I was like 'nah it's fine'.

Why not?
If you are going to write in this style then you need to follow its conventions otherwise it just sounds like wrong notes.
