Will bad SAT II score hurt my chances?

Okay, so I know UW doesn't require SAT II scores, but while I was sending my scores to the other colleges before I took my test, I couldn't uncheck the option of sending my SAT scores to UW for some reason because I hadn't taken the test yet, but I wanted to send the scores as soon as the results came out.

Either way, I ended up having to send my SAT II scores to UW even though UW doesn't need it.

But the results came out, and I found that two of my three scores are really bad. Literature 610 (55 percentile) and history 600 (45 percentile). Although Math II I got an 800 on... And I know 600s isn't really bad for UW in-state, but I think the standard is a little different for subject tests...

So now I'm wondering if these two bad scores will hurt me. My SAT I score was good with 2220, but I feel like the two bad scores in the subject tests give this impression that the IB english and history classes I took weren't as difficult as they seem to be. But that's not true. I don't know why, I just messed up really badly on those two tests.

So... My question is whether or not those two scores will affect my chances, and if they will, how much?
