Theres some white smoke sputtering from the tail pipe the check engine light is on and it seem yo be some liquid leaking from the pipe. I had this car for 5 days and the RPM revved to 5000 without me pressing on the gas. It was like that for 3 days then it idle normally. About a month. Later I went to crank it up and it wasnt starting until the 5th time I tried to crank it up. After the car started it started dmoking from the tail pipe and runs rough. Idk what the problem is, can you help a struggling student out!

Those are really bad signs. Have all the fluid levels checked and pressure test the cooling system. It really sounds like it may have a blown head gasket.

I wouldnt know how to do that. Oh and btw, the fluid looks like it could be oil and it smokes when I press on the gas. When in idle it seems as though its steam.

Then I suggest you have it towed to a shop.
