If someone could please help me with the code and how to implement it. I have a list with status field in it. I would like to color code the status based on choice that was made.

the field name is status

the options are - submitted (color to be red), received (orange), inprogress (yellow), resolved (green) 

i believe i need to go to the list and advanced formatting, but that's all i know at this point.

any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you

Simple enough, you just need a quick decode to convert your statuses into colors.

var bg = Decode($datapoint.status,
'submitted', 'red',
'received', 'orange',
'inprogress', 'yellow',
'resolved', 'green',
'')


return {
  backgroundColor: bg
}

You can see in my expression that I actually gave you the return statement, too. If all you want to change is the background color, you don't need anything else.
