I’m an high school senior and on the college applications on the common app website, it asks for my dads education level. However, after I submitted, I realized I put ‘some secondary high school’ however I meant to put ‘some college/university’ will this affect my admissions? I already emailed each school but now I’m thinking I’m paranoid.

No, that will not affect your admissions. They use that for demographics information about their incoming class. Your email was fine, but not necessary. There won't be any issue from this.

No. Your father’s education is not a determining factor. Interesting it’s included but I imagine it’s only to learn something of family history and perhaps some measure of support and financial situation. But MANY people whose parents never went to college go to college and you will not be discriminated against because of it. Relax!

Correcting your error should not negatively affect your applications. While one certainly doesn't want to make mistakes on a college application, without your correction your answer might have been considered to be deception. One trick of Rick Singer's (of the college admissions scandal) was to falsely say applicants were first generation college students.
