Yeah or that.
Honestly all these group terms matter zilch. There are so many of them nowadays and they are all subjective. Some people say hispanic includes brazil, others say latino is the better word. Etc. I wouldn't sweat
To me, race = your skin colour.
Then ethnicity is just where your parents are from. So you're ethnically brazilian and spanish mix.

Latino is not an ethnic group, but is something comparable to being European. There are white people who are Latino, and having "olive" skin does not make one non-white, just a different shade of white.
So, if I had to guess, should you have white parents and no non-white genes within your immediate family history, you would be a white Latino.

Brazil is a very mixed nation, as the Portuguese bought slaves from various nation (including local natives) when the country was formed . A huge majority are mixed. Most white Brazilians are pure Spaniard, some having some black ancestry. There are also black Brazilians.

You could call yourself a Latina, as it's what most do.
