Box 1 and 2 empty on 1098-T

Here are some of my details:

1. Boxes 1 and 2 are empty on my 2018 1098-T.

2. Box 1 is empty, 2 is filled out on my 2017 1098-T. Box 7 is checked.

3. I did not file taxes in 2017. My parents don't file taxes because they are non-US citizens living outside the US.

4. I graduated in May 2018.

Then for my tax returns this year, in box 1, should I do the "what if this is not what I paid to this school?' and enter the amount that's in box 2 of the 2017 1098-T?

Thank you in advance!

enter the amounts you actually paid in calendar year 2018.
you should have statements to back it up.
You do not enter amounts paid in 2017.
