    I have been absent for two school days in my senior year so far.
    I have also finished my application to the UK thru UCAS like two weeks ago.

    My mentor (?) almost insists me to go to the school although there's basically nothing to do in school. He tries to persuade me that my absent school days recorded in the transcript would affect my application and my life. I'm actually a bit scared of what he always tells me.

    So,
    does UK unis look at my high school transcript and my absent school days that would affect the application result?

    Honestly no they don't really look at your high school transcript other than your IB scores/ standardized test scores (At least they didn't ask me to send mine).

    But it's a matter of responsibility for your studies that's more important, that means attending classes even when you may think it's useless.- don't make being absent a habit.
