The only thing is....the person who sold them to me said they will lay white eggs? I just read that marans lay brown? I keep trying to text the girl to see if she found out from her mom what breed they are, but so far, we have had no luck :(

That's strange. :/ And yes, Marans will lay brown eggs, and even if the chick isn't a Maran, all the breeds (I can think about) that are similar lay brown eggs as well.

Could it be a brown leghorn or ancona? I think I read that they lay white eggs?
Your chicks are neither of those breeds, the coloring is too far off. Here's an example:
