Should I retake A class that I got a D in?

As a Freshmen I did not take high school too seriously and I got a D for a total of 2 semesters in two different classes, Lab bio and ASL. My schedule for the Junior and Senior year are going to be pretty busy but I would be able to fit in the two classes my senior year but I am hesitant to do this because I was want to instead take an addition 2 computer science classes or engineering classes. If I don't retake the classes and instead take the additional classes that I am interested in, will that look worse than if I just retook the Lab bio and ASL?
