Hello I'm new to DejaDup and Fedora in general. What directories should I backup incase something goes wrong with my computer, so that I can restore that backup and have a pre-error version of my system?

That question has been asked and answered many times on this forum (and elsewhere). Have you searched and found some of those Q/A or threads?

Moreover, your backup strategy depends a lot on your use case and layout. Generally speaking, your /home is the most important directory - on a regular Fedora workstation it contains everything to restore your data (after a reinstallation). Or let's say almost everything, but that depends on far you want to go with your backup (list of installed software, global settings from /etc, etc)
