Use
$creds = Get-Credential

This will prompt for your credentials.

Then modify each
gwmi -computer $compname
to
gwmi -computer $compname -credentials $creds

First: it's -credentials, not - credentials. Notice the extra space you put in. That's where the error is from.

Second: Instead of

function GetCompName{
    $compname = Read-Host "Please enter a computer name or IP"
    CheckHost
}


use

function GetCompName{
    $compname = Read-Host "Please enter a computer name or IP"
    $creds = Get-Credential
    CheckHost
}


and remove $creds = Get-Credential from the start. This way the script will ask for credentials right after the computer name, which is the logical way

That's correct if you need to reenter the credentials each time (different credentials for different PCs). Else asking only once for the creds, at the very beginning or if not set already, is enough.
