everytime i have tried to draw over another line of the same colour, it changes to white.

This is very inconvienent as i love to draw and i really need this to stop.

I often over lap lines and i specialise in pixel art.

I spent about ten minutes of my time just trying to draw that simple face and about 15 trying to figure out the problem, and i think ive found what it is.

After some clicking aroun i found the tab for Colour Picker (background colour) and i think thats my problem.
It hasnt done this before and i desperately need this fixed asap.

If anyone has any fixes thatd be so so so great.

If i find a fix for those having the same problem as me i will keep this updated.

Thank you.

Try resetting the pencil tool by right clicking on the tool in the top Option bar:

Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? 

What are the Tool’s exact and complete settings in the Options Bar?

You don’t even seem to mention which Tool you are using and you seeem to have clipped the screen recording to exclude the pertinent parts like the Toolbar and the Blend Mode setting in the Options Bar.
