My results in GSC have dropped to nearly zero as if it's non-existent, however, I know I have a number of pages ranking on the 1st page. Also, my results in Google Analytics have been increasing and shows that 75% of my visits are coming organically. I love to use GSC daily. I just don't get it. Please help.

GSC reports are famously buggy. Many Webmaster World members have seen their numbers drop radically, then recover after a few days.

I need to check. I use a web hosting company called Placester for real estate. I have no control over code but can build out as many pages that I want. This technical stuff will need to be referred to them.

You have to create separate GSC accounts for https and http. Yes, that means you will have four accounts for each site, since you also need to register with and without www.
