Dropping a class or two?

Hey everyone! I'm a sophomore in high school, and my grades in Chemistry Honors (C+) and AP Computer Science (F) are really pulling down my GPA. I want to show colleges that I want to challenge myself but at the same time, have a decent GPA.

Would it look really bad to drop two classes at the semester break? I'm dropping AP Comp Sci 100% but I'm not quite sure about Chem H. My counselor said it would say "W" on my transcript next to AP Comp Sci, and I'd move down from Chem H to regular Chem.

Or should I just drop AP Comp Sci and stay in Chem H? I really want to drop out of Chem H because my teacher is just really tough on her grading style, labs, and tests. My senior friend said Chem H is even harder than his AP classes.

Thanks in advance everyone!
