Something is wrong...

I have been having thIs problem at the band that I play .
For exemple : in some parts of a song where we have a chord
Like A/C#... I like to play the C# on my bass, the keyboard is playing A/C# and the guitar I don't know I think us playing C#m, or I don't know what he is playing but it is sounding terrible.
Same thing with B/D# I think the guitar is clashing with bass and keyboard...
How would you go about fixing this problem? Should I play the A note on the bass? Am I doing it wrong?
I have been playing bass at bands for over 16 years but I never studied bass ever in my life...
I study guitar and performe as a bassist for over 16 years .... Go figure....
Take care guys .

think the guitarist is playing the wrong chord? im not sure but for a Amajor chord with a c# on bass it should be one of these inversions?

Be mindful of voiceleading and the figured bass of chords...When you are the bass player in the band, what you play will be the ultimate determinant of the harmonic function of the chords going on above you. This gives you great power.
