If you have an Edu license, and installed Pro.....Reinstall.
the problem is,i had education version and lost licence key,when bought new ssd i downloaded windows 10 from the website onto usb and now if i try to reinstall it its still pro.Friend is away for few days so cant use that usb.

Well, then you'll have a watermark for a few days. You need a reinstall and without a Windows Pro key, you're not activating Windows Pro.

contact your school and ask for new/replacement key and install edu again. They may have a link for the edu installer.
