Unsure of what AP classes to take?

I'm just planning out my junior and senior year and I cannot decide what APs to take in the math and science fields. For math, my options are Calculus AB or BC or Stats (one for junior year, one for Senior). Science options for senior year are physics B and environmental science. My problem is that I am not planning on going into a fields that requires much of this knowledge except for Stats (journalism). Some of these classes aren't offered at an honors level, but a lower, basic level. For example, there are two environmental science classes at my school. One is a basic level and the other is AP. I would much rather take AP because it is my level and, of course, offers college credit. So my questions are: If you were in my position, what would you do? And do colleges care if, let's say, a student not majoring in a STEM major doesn't take the hardest class (APES over Physics)? Thank you so much for any help, and sorry if this isn't in the appropriate section of the site!
