I’m half turkish and half english, i don’t look very mixed race but my dad is quite dark. Not sure if that matters but I’ve always considered Turkish to be ethnic. Am I technically mixed race?

you clearly say "mixed race" , i consider someone's race as the colour of their skin. The continent you are from does not always determine your race.

you are Turkish and English. Youre ethnically from 2 different continents, but you have 1 race.

thats my opinion anyway

It is. I'd say you are mixed race, as Turkish comes under Asian/middle eastern. But it probably won't come up in conversation as you say you look white.
