I've never had a pet but adopted a six months old cat about two days ago after dweling on the subject for about a year. I've heard a lot about how a pet should help lonely people and/or suffering from depression. Should have been great but so far it has given me nothing but anxiety. I'm not feeling attached and have no idea what to do with her.
Everyone knows I have a cat already but how bad would it look if I gave up and brought her back to the shelter or something?
You have to give it more than 2 days dude. The cat is anxious too and needs time to adjust to his new home. Once he has done that, he is more likely to be affectionate and stuff which is what commonly helps with depression. You also need time to adjust. Give it 2 or 3 weeks. You owe yourself and the cat that much

You should actually give it away just because it needs a better owner. God damn, OP. Just baka tbqh faam.
Nut the fuck up and take of that damn cat. You've had it for two days and you're expecting to be in love with it? Stop. Seriously. You're obligated to take care of the cat. If you give it love, you will get love. Cats can be incredibly affectionate to those that take the time to take care of them.

This. Just wait til your cat gives you eye kisses, it's adorable. You can slowly blink back at them and they'll reciprocate. Scratch its sweet spots too, like the base of the tail, under the chin, and the back of the ears; they really appreciate that. I miss mine, coyotes killed him just after Christmas.

And why did this happen?
