I have a document library that contains:

Title,Publish Status

Publish Status is drop-down menu field with two status: Draft or Publish

Once the field is set to publish,the permission of the file must change. The user can't edit or delete how would I procede?

I am using SharePoint 2013

Any suggestion will be appreciated

I think you should instead use the versioning settings features rather than a choice column. There you have many chances to find what you need (content approval etc.).
