Typically, college students will change their major at least once before they graduate. Don't stress about it. Take some core classes at first and dont overload yourself. The transition from a high school schedule to a college schedule can be new territory for most people.
The national average is that a college student will change their major 3 times before they graduate. This is obviously an average, I haven't changed my major but I have friends who have done it 4 or 5 times now. It happens, and general education class cross over in majors so it isn't a big deal at all.
