How much would I owe for self-employment tax if I have two jobs that are 1099 forms? Is the tax going to be counted as one?

Will be the same as if you got the same amount from one 1099 job, a little under 15.3%

You must complete a schedule C for each 'job' to calculate what your NET business income is. You pay self-employment tax on the NET income, reporting the net income from all Schedule C you file on ONE Schedule SE (and on ONE Form 1040 and whichever of the six new sub-schedules that business income is reported on).
You pay 15.3% self employment tax on 92.735% of your net business income.

The tax is based only on the total amount of money, not on the number of jobs. The self-employment tax is 15.3% of "net earnings", which are defined as 92.35% of profit, so you pay 15.3% of 92.35% of profit, which is approximately 14% of profit.

Whether or not you get a 1099-misc, you report all income.
If both of the forms are for the same line of work, you add them up and enter them on a single 1040 schedule C. You also include any income that didn't issue the form (eg, not a business or less than $600).
If the net earnings are $400 or more, you must also do a 1040 schedule SE (just one, no matter how many schedule Cs you alone had).
The schedule SE is roughly 15.3% of the net income.
The income itself is taxed at your regular tax rate.
