Admin cant add Categories (or am i an Admin?)

My searches all found closed threads, sorry to start a new one but I didnt see an option.

To begin, i believe I am definitely an Admin, not just a moderator, so should be able to add Categories.

hamburger menu says I am

Ok weird, I can use the admin URL and see all the tools, but the shield symbol does say I am a Moderator. I am a little confused, it feels like I am a moderater but somehow got access to see admin stuff, but not create categories…

New to this, any advice appreciated! Thx
