How will this affect me?
Answered

Maybe I’m just being a little paranoid but in my Junior year of high school, I’ve gotten a C (75) in NC Math 3 Honors and a D (60) In Chemistry Honors.

I didn’t need Chemistry to pass or anything, so it was technically an elective than a core class. I have no idea why I was taking it, but I still failed immensely.

I’ve gotten all A’s throughout Freshman and Senior years and I’ve taken a mixture of honors/on level class (1 AP in Junior). Will those harshly affect my GPA and end up tanking it? Also, will colleges look at the grades and think something bad? Thank you.

To put it bluntly: you'll be fine. One or two lower grades is normal, and I believe a lot of colleges actually appreciate that! Sometimes you bite off more than you can chew, especially in an Honors or AP class, and college admissions officers definitely understand that. I wouldn't worry about it too much :)
