As long as your W's were non-punitive, they don't count. Having two is normal, and won't matter for you at all.

What does "non-punitive" mean?

Basically I t's punitive if your school factors it into your GPA. Most common scenario is if you forgot to drop a class and failed it or something like that. If it's a regular "withdrawal" then you're good.
