Home page in nav bar is not the home page

Hello!
Just rebuilt my own website with uPfront and went through several learning curves, but it was pretty fast overall, since I do now understand the difference between Builder and Editor.

My question is this: I have the home page as I want it - when you first go to https:my-designs.net - HOWEVER, when you click on the Home in the navigation bar, it takes you to https://my-designs.net/home - and this page just has the standard "simple genereic page" design I created in builder for all my interior pages.

I have the settings in Reading I think the correct way...so the issue is with the nav bar sending you to a different page or version of the home page. Please help!

Also, how can I link the HEADER image to the true home page?

Thank you
