so if you can help i be very gratful.


Discovery models do not have a superlock mode.  That is unique to the Range Rovers with two stage door latches.  What it may be in is regular security lockout mode.  Unfortunately, the only way to find that out and clear the situation is via the Land Rover test systems - Autologic, T4, or IDS.  So you're going to need a shop with that equipment to take the next step.
