The first line of text will be larger and bold if "New Notes Start With" is set to Title in Settings > Notes.

There is little else you can do. The Notes app does not have selectable fonts. You can type in bold, underline, and italic, but the text should be normal by default.

There are some global settings. The most likely to be turned on would be the Settings > Display & Brightness > Bold Text toggle. This makes text bolder throughout the user interface, in most of Apples first party apps, and in many third party apps. The Text Size option in the same area can have similar effects.

Those controls are duplicated in Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size, along with some other options. Again, these are global settings, not specific to Notes.

Sorry I spelled it wrong. Originally l had lots of signs along the bottom and l wanted to start the page clear. Aleymi or l think that was the name told me to simply tap the square box top right hand corner with the pencil and the page would start clear.
Then l saw that the Headline was very bold and asked how to remove it. Being told l seem to have messed it all up.
Now it’s worse than than before. All the pencils/colours etc are back along the bottom. And the the square with the Diagonal pencil in the top right corner has FADED and doesn’t function anymore.
Help please BB

When you first start a new note, the new note icon (page and pencil) will be grayed out until you add something to the note. As soon as you start typing or drawing, the icon should become active again. You should also see a Done option appear when editing the note.

I'm not sure why the pen tools are showing at the bottom. They should only show up when you choose the pen tool (pen tip in a circle).
