    I graphed it and it formed a parabola, does that mean it is not an exponential function?

    Its right in the word. Exponential. Meaning exponent. Base^exponent when the base is constant and the exponent varies like this C^x where c is a constant and x is variable.

    exponential y varies as the exponent varies
