Should i drop this class with a withdraw; would it affect college admissions

currently, I am a junior heading into my senior year of high school. I have a 4.2 Weighted GPA 3.8 unweighted GPA and I am eight ranked in my class. I have a hard decision to make. I decided to take both government and micro economics through college in the summer as a summer class. My government class is doing good. Imma get an A but my Micro economics class I’m a get a C the problem is the class is stressful. It’s four weeks long and there’s so much work and coupled with my government class like I am getting super stressed out and the workload is insane. I realize now I should’ve not taken two college classes, but it’s too late for that, my only option is either just try super hard to get at least hopefully a B in the micro economics class While getting an A In my government class. The thing is, I don’t know if I could do it so much work I’m getting stressed out. should I withdraw from the micro preserve my GPA and have time to study for the SAT but the opportunity cost would be a withdraw my transcript and I have to take the class during the school year or should I continue with the class at the best case scenario if everything goes perfect i would get a B or get a c which is the most likely scenario. I would still get an A in my government class, but I also risk lowering my GPA and being insanely stressed; only being focused on my two college classes not sat or anything else.
