I quit my job a little over a year ago and my Cobra insurance finishes up in February. Is there a way I can tell online if I'm currently covered through Cal Cobra or Federal Cobra? I'd like to reapply for whichever one I'm currently not using so I can stay on my current insurance but am not sure where to look, thanks.

Cobra is only through the employer.

If the company had 20 or more employees you are on Federal Cobra
If the company had 19 or fewer employees you are on CAL Cobra.
You don't get to "reapply". When it ends in February, it ends. You can purchase private insurance at that time. Blue Shield, Heathnet, and Kaiser are the largest private insurance providers in CA.
If you don't need to maintain certain doctors, you can probably save money by switching sooner.

You don't get to use your eligibility for one, then still be eligile for the other.

No such thing. Cobra is through your employer.
