I have been trying to figure this out and I cannot solve it.

I am trying to create something which say IF column a = "High" AND Column b ="High" THEN "Red" should be inputted. So far I have...

=IF(
    ([Column a]="High" AND([Column b]="High") ) 
    ,"Red"
    , IF(
         ([column a]="High" AND([Column B]="Low") )
         ,Gold"
         , IF(
              ([Column a]="Low" AND([Column b]="High") )
              ,"Green"
              , IF(
                   ([Column a]="Low" ( AND[Column b]="Low") )
                   ,"Black"
                   , ("n/a")
                  )
              )
        )
  )

Thanks in advance

The formula will be something like this. I have not tested it, but it should work:

=IF(
    AND([Column A]="High",[Column b]="High")
    ,"Red"
    ,IF(
        AND([Column A]="High",[Column b]="Low")
        ,"Gold"
        ,IF(
            AND([Column A]="Low",[Column b]="High")
            ,"Green"
            ,IF(
                AND([Column A]="Low",[Column b]="Low")
                ,"Black"
                ,"NA"
               )
           )
      )
  )

Correct, contrary to programming languages, SharePoint has Logical Functions, not Operators.
Note: A SharePoint Function can (only) take up to 30 parameters..

More info on available Functions at: ViewMaster365/Functions

If status is always high/low you can condense your Formula to:

=IF(
    [Column A]="High"
    ,IF([Column b]="High"
        ,"Red"
        ,"Gold"
        )
    ,IF([Column b]="High"
        ,"Green"
        ,"Black"
        )
  )

You can copy/paste Formula from here into SharePoint; on save SharePoint will remove all newlines and spaces

Update #1

When you do want the NA option, rewrite it to a way better readable Formula:

=IF([Column A]&[Column b]="HighHigh"
    ,"Red"
    ,IF([Column A]&[Column b]="HighLow"
        ,"Gold"
        ,IF([Column A]&[Column b]="LowHigh"
            ,"Green"
            ,IF([Column A]&[Column b]="LowLow"
                ,"Black"
                ,"NA"
            )
        )
    )
