the sliding door and the screen door but if I open the screen door and push it right and it is even

The only way that could happen is if your sill has been crushed on that side, and come loose from the side jamb. Measure the height of the opening in 3 places on the outside. Measure from the bottom of the sill nose to the top of the frame... on the Left, middle, right. You should come up with something like 80 3/4" or 81" or something like that.

Tell us the measurements. Maybe include a picture of the sill nose on that side... specifically the bottom left corner on the outside. You might need to jack it up with a pry bar and put a straight block of wood under it to prop it up.

Also pictures of the bottom of the screen that show the rollers sitting on the track.
