Wand tool in Photoshop 2021 not working correctly (Mac)

Hello,

I've updated my Photoshop to the most recent version of 2021 and for some reason the wand tool is not working correctly. This has been very problematic since a last part of a client project I worked on involved me doing more clean up work due to the wand tool not working well.

 

Basically, I've tried everything, even looking in the Preferences to see if there's something I'm missing. Changing the Tolerance to "0" did nothing, selecting and unselecting the Anti-allas, Contiguous, and Sample All Layers were not working either. Sample All Layers got the almost desired approach but when trying it on other colors, suddenly it wasn't working.

 

I'm just really lost since I use the wand tool a lot when changing up colors and selecting parts of a picture I want to move around. Pixels are easier to fix up than whatever gets selected like the picture below.

 

Any ideas? I really need to figure this out quickly.
