Hello musaddiq_143,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!

I understand from your post that your administrator account has become a standard account. In order to change the status back to an administrator account you will need to login to another administrator account and follow the steps from the article below:

macOS Sierra: Set up users, guests, and groups on your Mac

Best Regards.
