It should be noted, that even after removing libglib, the custom version I compiled was still in /usr/local/lib. Is there any way to remove it?
This is why I use checkinstall which is used after you compile a program and it converts it to a Debian package which can then be removed like any other package. If you haven't used checkinstall or something like that, then I guess you have to delete the files you created from /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/bin.

Holy shit! I did it. I want to thank you for your help. What I did was: I went to /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig and found the exact version of glib I had compiled, downloaded the tar and then I did make uninstall and it removed the /usr/local files.
