Problem Swapping - Help Please!

I swapped ETH to ELON on metamask, sped up the transaction and it said it was successful but then it created a new transaction with a status of dropped and replaced. It’s been that way for hours now and won’t allow me to speed it up or cancel it. I realised when transferring ETH to metamask I used the address above the buy, sell, swap part of Metamask and not the long code under the QR code beside Directly Deposit Ether. I thought this was the right way as I seen it in a video but my friend used a different method with the long QR code that took her to the website so could this have been the problem? Please help, I’m so confused and want to know where I stand with my money!
