What should I do in Washington DC?
So I’m trying to visit DC next spring. I plan on 5 days total( 2 days dedicated to flying to there and flying back home) my budget is about ~$800. What attractions are free or cheap? Also is it worth visiting Nation Harbour as well?

The Smithsonian museums on the National Mall are free, and you could probably spend an entire day in one or two. There's also Free Tours by Foot, which offers several tours of DC (but it is nice to tip your tour guide), including a Lincoln Assassination tour and also a Monuments by Moonlight.
Bring comfortable shoes, as you will be doing a lot of walking.

National Harbor is not worth a visit, unless there's something very specific there for you. It's some distance from downtown DC, and transportation can be difficult.

Smithsonian museums and galleries, Old Town Alexandria, the monuments (Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson). It's worth going to Mount Vernon even though that isn't free, the National Archives

YOu are flying to Washington DC for a ONE DAY TRIP, it is a waste of time and $$$.

See the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, the Holocaust Museum, The Vietnam Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery, The Smithsonian Museum and that should pretty much cover your free 3 days. None of them are expensive, some are free. If that $800 is your budget already takes lodging into account, you'll be fine.

There's plenty to do in DC. I highly recommend the Smithsonian. There are a number of good tours of the monuments- at night by trolley, on segways, and by electric cart. Check Tripadvisor for suggestions- https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g28970-A...
