I am considering my future. My civilian career as a surgical tech no longer satisfies me and I have no passion to go further in the medical field. I am considering down the road looking for an AGR position or Unit admin. I also want to consider warrant down the road, is it difficult to get warrant as a 42a? Thank you for the advice.

Always remember to consider your quality of life. If the warrant officer area is what you want to do, I would suggest that you get your ducks in line (i.e. get the education and schooling required, if you have not already) and make yourself the "go-to" person in your unit.
What is your end state? Do you plan to stay in the military for any length of time? If I were you, I'd put together a 420 warrant packet and an AGR packet and develop both. Going warrant as a 42a is only difficult if you do nothing. Otherwise I'd go for it. I was a 42a at the Airborne School at Ft Benning (Regular Army) and at the Special Forces school at Ft Bragg (AGR). Both were awesome assignments. I enjoyed helping people so it just might be a good fit for you. As you put together both packets (420a and AGR) you'll probably have better insight on what you want to do. I hope this helps.
