In the other part in my account, I put that I can be claimed by someone else. How do I know that once I file, it would say that I am a dependent?

In My Info you are asked if you can be claimed as someone else's dependent.  If you can be claimed as someone else's dependent then you answer YES to the question.   Then if you are not sure what it shows on your Form 1040---look at it.   Up near the top of the form it should have a check or an x in the box that shows if you can be claimed as someone's dependent.   Look for the words "Standard Deduction"---then read to the right.

Yes you have indicated that you can be claimed as someone else's dependent.   That means you are NOT eligible to receive any stimulus checks, among other things.

So does that mean I'm not allowed to file my taxes? Apologies for the many questions, I'm new to this.

CAN I FILE A RETURN IF I AM A DEPENDENT?

If you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return, you can still file your own return so that you can receive a refund of taxes withheld.  (You will not get back anything for Social Security or Medicare withheld.) Be sure that on your own return you say that you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.

Yes you might still have to file your own return if you have income.  You don't have to file if you only have W2 income under 12,400 but you can file to get back any withholding taken out in boxes 2 or 17.  But you don't get boxes 4 or 6 back.  If you got a 1099Misc or 1099NEC you have to file it as self employment income no matter how small the amount.
